Hi All,
I was changing the black rubber intake manifold on the 06 GTS this evening. It's the part directly after the carb, down into the cylinder head. Whilst I had the cracked one off, I knocked over a bottle and inadvertently spilled a bit of engine oil down into the hole, into the combustion chamber Facepalm emoticon . Not a lot, a few CCs at most. I haven't started the engine yet or anything, any Ideas on how to get it out please? Or do I need to? I was thinking of taking out the spark plug and trying to turn over the engine to push it out maybe? Possibly a dumb Idea. I'm trying not to wreck the engine. Any advice gratefully received Crying or Very sad emoticon

roll up a paper towel like a wick and noodle it down in there to get as much as you can (this may take several times). then I'd pull the plug and splash a little gas down the intake and turn it over really slowly by hand. repeat this process a few times. do not, I repeat, do not go full ham a lose part of the towel down in there. and for the love of gawd do not turn it over with the towel in there.

finally, button it all back up, but leave the plug out and give it a few bursts with the starter button to clear any residual and you should be good to go. reinstall the plug and fire it off. it might be super smokey for a bit, but you should be fine.

Gentleman !
Thanks Greasy, glad you're still on here.
I'll try that tomorrow. To turn it over by hand- remove the variator cover and manually turn the front pulley?

yeah, that's how I'd go about it.
