i have 2012 Corolla, When remove the engine cap(Top) while engine is running in neutral
oil come out. what's wrong?

1 Answer

Nothing is wrong. You are not suppose to remove the oil cap with engine running, it has oil pumped up there for overhead cam and will splatter out. There is no reason to take the cap off except to add oil, and do that with engine off
