Hi there ,thanks
Ok you will need to go and replace this coolant cap ASAP as this us what pressurises the coolant system
If the system is not pressurised the vehice will overheat /boil up causing coolant loss
This can cause further damage to the engine . I would advise getting this cap fitted ASAP tommorow
Kind regards ***** ***** and have a nice evening
Brian
