yeah, the motor saw the cap was off and couldn't put correct pressure to the injectors, so it died.

You may have choked the system by overfilling and making the charcoal canister dysfunctional.

It can't breathe. the charcoal canister is logged with gasoline-

The cap has nothing to do with the pump and injectors. The cap is emissions related. Sounds like the sediment while filling up got displaced and clogged the pumps sock while running.
