Piece of plastic broke off oil filler neck...help!
As I was changing my oil this weekend, my oil cap was giving me a really hard time coming loose. Not really sure how this happened, but anyway it came loose...but with the filler neck. After swearing and looking over the piece, I noticed that it looks like a little tab broke off the filler neck. The tab appears looks like it keeps the tube in place once twisted down. There's no place else for the tab to go except for into the depths of the engine. I tried to flush it out with some more oil, but have seen no evidence of it.
How concerned should I be with this little piece of plastic? I know it's obviously not ideal, but could I get away with this? Do you think this would get caught in some filter?
It's always something...
