    The thing is that I had tried to remove the cap before and it was so tight I was unable to remove it. So I don’t know how it was able to come off by itself.

    Plot twist: I discovered that the power steering cap blew off. It does appear that power steering fluid went all over the engine bay. What could have caused this to happen?

    I pulled over when the idle was hanging last night and popped the hood and sure enough the TBs were slightly open. When I manually closed them idle went to normal.
