Plastic straw went inside my Civic's 00 throttle body.Not the straw which we use for drinking but the one which comes with throttle cleaner.I was spraying the cleaner in the throttle body with butterfly open.Within a second straw just vanished.Looked under the car then the engine bay no where to be found.The nightmare.Open the butterfly and there it was far inside.Friends then came to help.Tried a lot but then as expected went down in the valves and out of sight.Closed the throttle body fired up the engine and engine behaved normally.I'm still frightened.Where would the straw be now?It's a thin plastic straw and height was about 6 inches.It was Saturday night went on a drive and Mashallah everything went fine.Still scared.Car is petrol driven.
with high temperature & compression it must have vanished in smoke remember it was PLASTIC tube in high temperature metal environment
it also happend with me the car was a d15b hatchback it vanished inside and never came out
^did the engine keep running,
my two cents are to go for an engine flush and an oil change
Nightmare it is if you love your car.
Allah ka shukar hai my engine running perfectly fine and didn't show any abnormal behavior.This incident happened just last night.
^^âs plastic melts at high temp so i dont think there is anything to react over at present,pray that it does not affect the air flow.rest is all well.
