So, I was changing out my alternator and belt but to get to it I had to take off the air intake and throttle body. When I took off the throttle body I stuffed the two open ports with those blue shop towels that you can get at any auto shop. Well, upon putting everything back on, I forgot to take out the shop towels and proceeded to take the car out on a test drive, and gunned it. The car started to sputter gasping for air and then it dawned on me, I Forgot to take out the towels!!!
I get the car home, take off the manifold and I find one of the towels stuck between the manifold and the engine port, intact. But, the other, nothing! The only thing that is left is what you would find in your drier lint trap, but not a ton of it. I cleaned out the manifold and the car runs as normal.
So, Should I be worried? Did the engine burn it up and spit it out of the exhaust??
