    The oil cap on these models should not be able to jump off if there is not a very high pressure in the engine or fitted incorrectly. Check the crankcase ventilation hose and make sure the ventilation is good.
    Check the trouble codes for the engine.

    What do you mean by move?
    If you engage a gear and release the clutch when the engine is on and it does not move forward, it should either be a problem with the clutch, a driveshaft or the gearbox
