The OEM (and probably any) oil fill caps are always tighter when the engine is hot. If you are going to warm the engine before draining oil, the trick is to loosen the cap when the engine is cold.

We are talking about the plastic oil fill cap that screws into the valve cover ?
I have never known them to be tight on any car ?

I'm guessing that is a blue Limited?... Perhaps 96?
I guess this because the PCM has a plastic cover over it Limited only as far as I know Any way tell Us What's going to be created!

Shes a 96 Black Sport and has been semi-retired for over a year.....
Out with the stock 4.0.
Engine was built by Dan-cj7 in Geelong for his CJ but he sold his project to Dan in Sydney who then sold it to me.
Its been sitting on the shelf for a few years now but its time to get it in and going.
Keith black pistons
Comp cam and lifters.
Balanced crank.
Shaved head, decked block.
All the regular re-build shizzle.
AND,
Adjustable MAP sensor.
Hesco water pump.
S/S Extractors
Cold air intake.
Auto is getting swapped for a much younger one along with a flush, filter, etc
Has a triple fan and alloy radiator already.

Should go alright.....

Well I got the 96 part right! ... the plastic PCM cover intrigues me I have seen under the hood of a 96 98 and 99 sports and none of these had the cover ? Did they all loose them? They are a tight fit! That's why I thought it was part of the Limited package ?
Is it a 96 thing? We need awg to weigh in now he has 3 to cross reference 2 sports and a limited do they all have the cover?
Gildo sounds like a awesome build suspension as well I suppose?................. Sounds Great cant wait to watch your Progress!

my 3 x '96 all have an identical plastic cover, as you have to look in at a certain angle to see the PCM part num

Interesting I wonder if later years have them?
