[DML] Possibly dropped copper washer from fuel line into engine cylinder



While taking out my injectors to send out for cleaning, I accidentally 
dropped one of the small copper washers.  I will be looking for it 
when I have some time, hoping it dropped down below somewhere in a 
harmless location.  It wasn't on the floor when I looked.  Probably a 
small chance, but what if the washer dropped into the open injector 
opening into the cylinder?  I am hoping I don't have to disassemble 
anything to look for it, and wondered if serious damage could occur if 
a washer did fall into the opening into the engine cylinder.  Since it 
is a relatively soft and small washer, I would hope it would just get 
vaporized as the cylinder fired, or could it totally mess up the 
engine.  Any advice is appeciated.

Thanks,

Paul
