    My first book that taught me about engines, "How to keep your VW beetle alive, a step by step manual for the complete idiot", led to my first job shortly afterwards. Rebuilding Porche 911 engines in vintage 60's 911. It's becasue after reading the whole book, and not knowing what oil did or how to change the oil, I took the engine out to see how it worked and of course changed the oil. The point here is that in this book, when things were going wrong, the author knew to stop and throw in a joke. Not kidding.

    So, now that that has happen, can anyone guess this part! IMG_3514.JPG IMG_3515.JPG IMG_3516.JPG IMG_3515.JPG IMG_3516.JPG

    just under the size of a dime. Color says internal engine or transmission. Not so sure it is all there , like a part of a spring,, if longer I would guess
    a oil bypass spring. I assume it is chevy or GMC. Could be something out of an automatic trans again a bypass/pressure relief .Could be a tension spring on a shaft.

    Bib Blue. 2005 GMC Yuki XL 1500 Denali w/4l65e, now if I can just get the silly thing back together...was putting the timing cover back on last night...and it frick'n cracked! Since it's on 05, you are kind of limited on parts. Dorman, which we have not been getting along with too good lately...or dealer. Got the dealer one...and it came with yet another set of gaskets I don't need! The good news is that at the vehicle was driving fine, so if I drive it straight to the tranny shop, we might get lucky...or not...
