Angry Fml

Recently I bought a new intake manifold for my 1999 gt. While I was taking the old manifold off, somehow a simple flat washer fell in to one of the spark plug holes. The washer is the perfect size to fit around the top of the plug and fit perfectly into the hole with about 1/32" of space all the way around. So now I cannot put my motor back together because the washer stops the coil pack from going on to the plug. I have tried everything I can think of to get the washer out and still no luck. Any ideas or suggestions would be appreciated.

I tried that, even the smallest one is to big to fit into the space between the plug and the wall.

What about long narrow screw drivers used together to work it back up and out? Maybe the washer is kinda wedged in. The screw driver might be able to losen it such that the magnet can snag it..?

Try using a vacuum cleaner to suck it out. A shop vac will work best but any one should work. Just ring the spark plug hole with some rags to get a good seal and use a suitable attachment on the vacuum cleaner.

Now that's creative right there!

Go get some thin bendable wire from a hardware store. If you make a hook or get it through the hole you could get it out.
