    maybe, if your lucky. it could get caught on the way down and get around the chain, crank , any number of things. I wouldbe leary of driving this car at this time till you see where it went.

    Find a tech with a video scope to see if he or she can find it by looking inside the oil pan and the area where the sensor dropped.
