yes tank not venting, normally they shut off before they do that to the tank. you need to clear out the vent line, you can remove the tank, blow some air through it and see if it comes out...

If the vent is clear, how could the cap have any effect? I don't even understand your reasoning. I'm sure it's legit, I just don't follow your train of thought on this.
