Re: Need help

First guess would be a bushing from a coil pack where the single 10mm bolt goes through the plastic tab on the coil.

Love mysteries..

I checked all the coils they were still in the coils are these things in the motor are there round things between the valves on cam something in there I can't tell if it's or if it's a solid piece it looks the same width as in motor just kind of weird because I was picking valve cover up when it fell off you would have thought it would have been down in the motor not inside the valve cover
