Cool OIL CAP LEAKING, WTF!!!!

I put my jmb cai and catch can on a little over a week ago.Really like it.Looks awesome.Moved my truck on sunday and noticed a couple oil spots! WTF!! Starting looking thinking it was maybe a loose bolt or something from my last service.Had the trans serviced and oil changed.Crawled under to have a look.Noticed the oil was a little farther forward.Popped the hood and saw some oil around the cap and a little puddle under on the valve cover.UHHHA!Found the problem.But why All my lines seem ok going into the catch can.(no kinks) Catch can seems to be working alright.Hot air and a little steam coming out while she's running.Spoke with Justin at JMB and also
the mopar connection to see what they thought.Maybe just a loose capCranked it tight until it cliks and a couple more for good measure.Got home from work and BAM, More freaking OIL!!Wondering if anyone else has had their cap go bad.I dont think it has anything to do with my catch can.Will try a new cap.Hopefully the dodge dealer has one.Any ideas?

I was also thinking of putting the orig line back on that side and see if it makes any diff.Thanks in advance

I posted on this awhile back, It is the O ring on the cap. You can replace the O ring or the cap.

Mental note for Won't Grow Old: Change your own oil, change your own transmission fluid, torque your own lug nuts, wash your truck yourself, cherish the time caressing your lovely beast...

I had the same exact problem, only I have the Roe breather. I replaced both o-rings on it and presto, no more leaky!!
