2000 Toyota RAV4 - Oops - dropped into intake

2000 rav4 dropped a small plastic brush into the intake. Trying everything to get it out if the engine is run is that enough plast to wreck a valve or worse?

Yes it is. Get it out of there.

Have you tried using a shop-vac to try and suck it out or blow it out using air into the spark plug hole?

Yeah, I’d figure out how to get a hose small enough to snake down to the location of the lost item, tape it up to a vacuum, see if I could pull it out.

Or, buy a cheap bore scope. And see if you can find the item? Nice tool to have.
