Squirrel Nuts Causing Engine Problems

squirrel.jpg A couple from Clydebank, England noted some odd noises coming from under the hood of their car in recent weeks. They took the car to a local mechanic where a thorough inspection revealed 8 pounds of nuts in the air filter deposited by neighborhood squirrels.

“They said ‘there’s your problem. Those were in your resonator and in your air filter’.”

“The squirrels apparently had been going through the air pipe entrance, through the resonator box, and into the air filter.”
