    Like BigE said - this is a very easy problem to remedy
    before it even becomes a problem. The Roe kit is simple
    and cheap. Do not drive it that way - it only takes a few
    drops to ignite your engine bay. Call Scharf or JonB - im
    sure they probably have one laying around they can sell
    cheap, if not they are 100x better than a stealership on
    inventory and price. They may even know of a good
    alternative if not.

    Also - "cranking it" tight is also a very bad idea. You risk
    cracking the plastic on both the reservoir and the cap AND
    it will eventually break loose again from heat cycling. The
    cap and reservoir are made from two different plastics and
    nothing you can to will prevent them from expanding at
    different speeds.
