The little metal ring that goes around the screw part of the plug came off in the head. I pulled the plugs, and 2 of them dont have the little metal ring on them.. I guess thats not neccesarilly a good thing, but how worried should I be? Never had this happen before, any ideas? Thanks.
this is a cross post, hoping for some quick answer.

It won't fit down inside the cylinder, but it is down the spark plug tube. It is mad eout of aluminum, so it won't come up with a magnet. Try a little grease on a stick or something. Nothing to worry about.
