I've done this twice already and come up empty both times ... mind you, I
don't know for sure there are any plastic pieces in the cylinder only that
three of the injector inserts I removed were broken.  I guess it's possible
they broke a long time ago and the plastic pieces have already been recycled
through the motor but since it's my mother's car, I figured I'd play it
safe.  Like I said, I'm really tempted to put it together and  pretend
nothing ever happened ... after all, how much damage can a little piece of
plastic do, anyway?
