Just broke the oil filler neck, if the oil cap fits without the neck is that Ok? Is there a purpose to the oil filler neck

My car has 30000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

The filler neck is an extension so you can pour in oil without a funnel. if the cap will now fit and seal on lower portion or velve cover then you should be okay and jut use a funnel to add oil.
