This 1996, 145 k, 3.0 Dodge Caravan of mine never stops me from be thinking of him. I've just arrived from work 11.3 miles regular roads. Everything seemingly was ok. As a routine, every 3 or 4 days I use to raise the hood from time to time due an oil leakage. But to my surprise this time I found that the engine oil fill cap was not there, and everything around, everywhere had a huge bath of hot oil. Checking the oil dipstick revealed no trace of oil in the engine. I know how bas this is. My question is: Was I careless thighting the oil cap the last time or was there a kind of burst, explotion or cap tearing?.
Should I refill with oil and just buy a new cap? Or is there something else going on?
Give me a piece of advice please! I want to learn this one!
