Asked by Oct 06, 2010 at 01:05 AM about the 2005 Pontiac GTO

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My gas cap won't tighten. I noticed it wasn't working quite right for awhile but now it won't lock after numerous attempts at turning it. I heard the gas caps are defective on 05 GTO's. What do I need to do to get it fixed?

New gas cap. There was a recall notice that went out back in the day. Cheap enough to get a new one though.
