slammed vr wagon 3.8L
my engine crapped itself today, something has gotten into the intake pipe:bang:

well i was going to bunnings to get some stuff when about half a km from home i lost all power, so i pulled over but kept it running, turned it around and crawled it home and let it cool down, when i got back from bunnings i popped the hood and found that the pod filter had come of, so i took the whole pipe off and there was a rather large piece of non-slip matting, i pulled it out and started the car, and it was idleing way too rough, and too low.
i think that it has just gone into the manifold, if it's gone in deeper then i'm ****ed:cry:
so hopefully i can get it in this week

i think thats why pod filters have to be supported as i have seen them break too, i know in nsw atleast its illegal to not have them supported. Might be a lesson learned the hard way. If its shagged them whack a 5ltr or super 6 in it.

I hate pods there way to noisey and you can get high flow filters that do the same anyway, mate has one on his 5.0 ltr and can hear it from 10 klm's away and its in a box!!!!

IS it possible to blow/suck it out via the available openings E.G spark plug holes, even rip the inlet manifold off?

take the inlet off and pull whatever is lodged in there out then stick it back on pretty easy to do yourself probably blocked an inlet port or stuck holding a valve open
