I opened my hood today to fill the window wash fluid and found my oil fill cap is missing. I know there is a chance that it was not installed after oil change #2 at the dealer. The tech that did my service is very good and I suspect it worked loose and came off but who knows. Has anyone else had this same issue?

I haven't. was oil blown into the engine compartment?
There is some oil near the fill tube but not real bad. This oil change has 3000 miles on it, I would think that I would have more mess if the cap was missing the entire time. I ordered a new cap online at a cost of $55 with shipping. Expensive plastic!

I honestly did this myself. But it made a real mess of the engine bay in only a day or two. The reason it's so expensive is you end up buying the entire filler neck and cap. Stealer wants about 75-95$ for a replacement. I did the same and got the part number then ordered online for ~45$. Live and learn. Oops.

Got my replacement from Mopar Wholesale Parts out of Avondale Az. Part number 68229365AA I have learned to be careful the cap can fool you and not be latched correctly.
Thank you I will be ordering one this PM. And thanks for the tip. I believe that I must have thought I latched it but not completely as I did have a little oil around the opening but not a lot. I had driven over 500 miles since I had checked it, if it was off all those miles I would have thought there would have been more blow back.

For fifty five dollars it for Shure would have a red rag shoved in it
