Whoa, unless it's a WAY different design, that's wrong. I'm sure a tech can say for sure later.
Just go get the right one, or have them deliver the right one cause they gave you the wrong one. Call them to be sure and gripe if it's wrong.

see thats what came out of my truck, I got ford to deliver me a motorcraft one (which doesnt fit) I thought ford gave me the wrong one, so I went to carquest and they gave me the same filter as ford.. Not sure what do to!

Im thinking the previous owner bought a cheaper filter that comes with a new cap, and they probably tossed the factory one.

Guess your gonna have to track down an aftermarket replacement or buy a new cap. Heres a guy that had the same problem as you, Aftermarket oil filter cap?

I guess NAPA has there own line.

That is more than likely what has happened.

I know purchased my truck new and after the first time and looking at the factory cap purchased one for backup if and when servicing the filter I would not be standing there needing one to replace a damaged unit.

Dealer did the same thing to me...I purchased the truck and they were nice enough to change the oil and filter for me upon delivery. I got about 200 miles down the road and the truck shut off on the highway due to no high pressure oil. I found a WIX filter and aftermarket cap instead of OEM after the local dealer had the truck for 6 days and was ready to pull the turbo and add a new HPOP. I did some research fror them, since they refused to, and found that an aftermarket filter and cap wreaks havoc on some trucks. I asked for an OEM filter and cap to be installed and it fired up.
