While gapping down my spark plugs, a piece of porcelain evidently fell off while pulling the plug up with a wrench and fell into my cylinder head. I thought it fell under the car and thought nothing of it because the porcelain is on the TOP of the plug. With new plugs in, I started the car for *ONE* second and immediately shut it off when I heard it. I pulled the plugs out and noticed the plug in cylinder 5 was mashed down, meaning that bit of porcelain obviously fell in there.
Here's what I'm looking at right now:
A) Taking an air compressor and trying to blow out all the porcelain pieces. Upside: Costs nothing. Downside: If even one little tiny piece remains, new shortblock time.
B) Taking the head apart. $1500-2000.
Any recommendations? Has anyone ever been in this situation before, as idiotic as it sounds?
