Fuel Cap Gasket



All vehicles require the replacement of the fuel filler cap gasket at 60,000 miles (96,558 km), to maintain the integrity of the evaporative emission control system. The gasket is important in sealing the filler neck and keeping the vapors from the tank routed through the vapor emission system. Some vehicles may have the gasket is held in with four small screws and a retaining plate which must be removed. Other models eliminate the screws and retainer. Gently pry the gasket off with your fingers or a tool. Install the new gasket and make certain it is NOT twisted or crimped.
