1998 Ford Fiesta - Engine Oil


Recommended Posts


I have a 1998 Ford Fiesta Encore Mk4, all I'm trying to do is simply top up my engine oil, for the life of me I can't seem to get the cap off though to do this.

Can anyone advise how this is done? Pictures attached of how it is set up.

Hello and welcome to the forum!

The whole plastic part (on top of the metal cam cover) comes off - try twisting it anti- clockwise and pulling hard (not too hard) at the same time

prone to sticking, have seen these draw blood when given too much of a pull, quite funny so long as its not you doing the pulling ;)

give it a generous squirt of wd40 where it enters the rocker cover then as said previously, give it a twist and pull

Thanks for the replies.

So trying to prise the thin cap off was the completely wrong thing to do, no wonder I wasn't getting anywhere! I'll give the suggestions above a go and will no doubt be back here if I still have no success.

Thanks! :)
