Simply follow these six essential steps for easy installation:

  1. Use the proper cap tool to remove the oil cap.
  2. Observe the positioning of the O-ring in the O-ring groove, then remove the old O-ring without damaging the plastic or metal cap.
  3. Clean the cap and housing carefully.
  4. Lubricate the new O-ring and cap seat completely with clean motor oil.
  5. Install the new O-ring in the O-ring groove so it does not touch the cap’s threads.
  6. Replace the cap and torque it with the correct tool to the recommended foot‐pound spec.
