    welp, I checked oil level tonight and noticed the oil cap is gone... probably been like that for some time. While I wait on a new one, am I ok to drive without? Am I gonna get a geyser? I was thinking of stuffing a rag in it and duct taping it on.

    You are ok tho drive it. There is a check valve/baffle that keeps oil from flying out the fill spout.

    wth??? been serviced at the dealer lately? Tell'em to give you a new one lol

    No geyser, just cover it with a flew layers of duct tape until you get a cap in the very very near future. Change your oil and filter ASAP in case some contaminants made their way in.

    Looks like $10, that sticker is cringe worthy.

    Thats why you need a 710 cap, they're way more secure than a oil cap
