today i did a oil change, when i opened the little trap door to dump the oils this rubber piece fell out, it looks like some sort of bushing anyone knows where it belongs or what it is. Im also very pissed at myself i wanted to open the plenum to take a look and clean it, to my surprise it was spotless, then as i was putting the bolt back on i snaped one of the studs on the plenum what do i need to do to get this fixed. Theres a # on the rubber piece CA 78.

Item 3 or 4 here depending on what you snapped. It was 3 on mine, not a hard job to replace or expensive to buy..........

As for the other thing that fell out, have no idea what that is, be interested to find out........

Just out of interest, what torque setting did you use for the bolt? The recommended?

Valve cover bolt seal? Someone could have dropped it in the engine bay at some point in time.

#13 or 15
