I have a three-pincered, flexible cable type, thumb-operated tool, about two-feet long, that I use to snag things that fall into otherwise inaccessible places.I was changing my oil with castrol oil and the plastic ring from the cap on the quart sized bottle fell into my oil resevor, what do i do

Draining oil may be a bit easier/cheaper/quickest method then fishing for a ring when you cant exactly see the ring. whatever is in the oil pan will flow toward the drain plug once oil starts flowing through it and pulling it out with some clean needle nose pliers shouldnt be hard at all. thats what id do. but do what you feel is easier for you officerhansen. again goodluckI have a three-pincered, flexible cable type, thumb-operated tool, about two-feet long, that I use to snag things that fall into otherwise inaccessible places.
Any auto supply should have it. Call ahead!
If it is the same setup as a 5.7/6.1L LX it will be sitting at the bottom off where you pour the oil in (bottom of the fill neck). The entrance into the motor is quite small (smaller than your thumb nail) and I doubt it would have gone through.
Long nose pliers and a torch will help u get it out.
Or you can just leave it there and in about 200,000 miles you can remove it when you are rebuilding the engine anyway. It's not gonna hurt anything.I think your right, thanks everyone for your responses I started the engine and it runs fine ill have to get some kind of little grabbing tool to fish it out. at:
