Dropping tools or bolts while working on a car is annoying, especially when it’s into the engine bay. When a mechanic drops something there’s always a silent pause while they wait to hear if it hits the ground. If not, it might take some time to find what was dropped.
This was the second time I’ve dropped the oil cap while finishing up an oil change on a Honda Odyssey. Both times it’s ended up here, between the engine, exhaust, and engine mount. I had to set the lift and raise it again and the first time it took me several minutes to get it out. The second time I had a small grabber tool I was able to use to get it out much quicker.
