When I crawled under my 99 Toyota Pre-Runner to install the belly pans after changing the timing belt and water pump, I found a small steel ball and tiny spring. I have no idea where they came from but the truck (V-6) runs perfect. Nothing leaks and all seems well. Can yyou help me out here? Until I find out where they go, I am going to be a nervous wreck.
The steel ball is about 5/32 diameter and the spring is about 1/4" long and stiff for its size.
Anybody have a clue where they go?

Thanks much :welder:

Doesn't sound like anything from your truck. Did you break any tools while wrenching?

Now that you mention it, I did twist off the end of my 3/8 breaker-bar on the crank bolt - Thank's Mike - I'll rest easy now.

Glad I could help. If you need help breaking any more tools, let me know, I'm pretty good at it. :D

i think those crank bolts do a good job of it all by themselves.

i managed to break a 19mm impact socket right as the torque wrench clicked over. split the damn thing right down the sides. that reminds me, i need to buy another 19mm impact

i was just gonna say, it is completely normal to have extra part laying around after you do work on your truck. :D . well, at least for me and all my friends. just think, hey, what will one bolt do?? lol. i know what you mean though, nothing is more nerve racking!!
