Question type: General

i have a 2016 nissan altima i made the mistake of
trying to open the engine oil cap clockwise instead
of counterclockwise. at first i thought it was tight
since it did not move but i then i realize i was doing
it wrong. will this demage the cap beacuse i was
forcing it the wrong way to open it? will it have an
effect on the oil pressure?
