Follow up on question,, engine is a 3800 series,, sorry for the after thought,,

I wouldn't too much about a piece of o-ring in the intake, it is soft and combustible if it did make it's way to the cylinders it was consumed. A scan might help if it stored any codes in memory. Is the check engine light on?

,, Its been on every since I bought the car,, 6 mnths,, ago,, , could I possably pull the fuse for the on board computer,, and rest the storred trouble codes?

I would first read the codes before i reset or erased any of them so that way you would have a better chance of nipping it in the bud
