I just replaced the o rings in mine. I had a buddy hold the tube and I grabbed the cap, turned and pulled at the same time, popped right off!
there even more fun going back on. Push down and turn at the same time.
O rings are expensive but should be done. mine were severly dry rotted, but still didnt leak

If its leaking between the pipe and cap, then its definetly getting past the o rings. theres also coolant running through it as well.
