Do I really have to worry about the power steering cap comming loose or off and burning my new prized posession to the gound?

I've never had any problems with my '94 or my '00. But I was looking at buying a '97 Blue and White a couple years ago and when I opened the hood I noticed the P Steering cap was just sitting there half off. So I would definately keep an eye on it.
Everytime you open your hood simply check to make sure it's tight.

I check the bastard all the time because I'm paranoid about it and all those other people I think are after me!
I can see I'm going to have to fab. up some kind of positive anti-rotation hold down device. That and several guns is the only way I'm going to feel safe. /images/graemlins/laughing.gif

THE CAP WILL COME LOOSE.

No doubt about it. I installed the tube from hipo and it works like a charm - complete peace of mind.

I've NEVER had my cap come loose (car has 60k+ miles), in fact it is only super friggin' tight and a bitch to get off (er, should I rephrase that?), but I said what the hell and put the aftermarket fix on anyway.

That's cause you don't drive your car hard you pussy /images/graemlins/supergrin.gif It will come off, happened to me twice and melted on my headers, use a 12" channel lock pliers to tighten.

I got scared into buying one and had to use the fucking jaws of life to unscrew it to put the HIPO fix on it. I think it depends just how tight that bitch is to begin with (words to live by).

If you cross thread it, it won't come off /images/graemlins/laughing.gif
