I was removing my old heater hose fitting and the part that goes into the motor fell in. How do I get it out.
Do you

Can you see the part that fell in, can you reach it? If it is ferrous metal, you can use a magnetic retrieval tool to get it. The autostore sells such a tool.

Maybe use a pair of needle-noise pliars to reach? Other-wise, if that hole is in the intake manifold, you may have to remove the manifold to get at the broken piece?
