Hey there! I’m very new to this so please go easy on me! I have a Pontiac Grand Prix 2008 base and I was taking the fuel rail off but one of the injectors was a bit stubborn. So I tried from all angles and gently wiggling it until I decided to go full force and well... this cap or covering came off and was stuck inside the lower intake, I finally got it out but now it won’t go back tightly on the injector 😅 is my injector screwed?

You may be OK to put a small dab of glue/epoxy around the top plastic edge, and reassemble. It's a cover that was either glued or friction welded to the top part.

If you get misfires on a light test drive, then you'll know if it needs replacing.

You're fine. Same thing happened to me. Grab some loctite super glue and clamp it in a vice after glueing it back together for about 30 minutes. It held up fine until I removed the fuel rail again.

Good luck. In the future, try dripping some oil to soak around the o-rings in the heads for a little while prior to removal. You can also double your chances of having an easier time by pulling the clips from the rail first to enable stubborn ones to identify themselves by staying put (fuel pressure relieved, some will still come out, so position shop rags). This can give you more flexibility when pulling them individually.
