Forgive me for not knowing anything about cars, but I have a problem I really
need some advice on.
My girlfriend lost the oil cap on her 1995 Honda Civic last week. When I
noticed the leaking oil and the missing cap, I sealed the hole with tinfoil
and tape so she could drive a few days until I got a new cap.
Well, yesterday we got the new cap and when I went to put it on a pieces of
tinfoil (small crunched up balls of it...probably 1 cm diameter) fell in. I
don't know the correct name for what it fell in to (the same place you pour
the oil when you're low). Two of the pieces just sat close to the top and I
managed to get them out with my finger, but one (maybe more) fell into this
small hole (again sorry for not knowing the name...but it seems that is where
the oil flows when you pour it in). I can see it a bit by looking down with
a flashlight, but haven't been able to get it out. The car hasn't been
started since then.
My questions are:
What would be your advice on getting the piece(s) out? If I dont manage to
get it out and they stay in there could this cause any problems?
Thanks a lot
