Possibly, but it's likely the original cap as the car had only 25,000 Miles on it when he got it.

I've just remembered, my car also suffered the same problem when I first got i,t a clean and spray with WD40 seemed to clear it. I bought the car with over 150,000 Miles on it about 8 years ago, so I can't vouch for the originality of the cap, but it's given no further problem.
