Anybody know where this goes??



I've heard of mice building nests in the heater, but squirrels stashing chestnuts in the engine compartment??

My engine compartment was filled with nuts that looked like walnuts all over. Couldn't tell you what kind they were, but i still find them occasionally

You just better hope it isn't a cave rat like we have around here. If they leave something then there is something else they took lol. When we went to Laurel Caverns this summer the tour guide told us about a guy that had his keys replaced with a stick at the front desk...

Obviously the squirrel had heard of the Fiero's reputation and put two and two together when he heard the lyrics "Chestnuts roasting on an open fire..."

That's funny.

When I split my tractor to replace the clutch I found a big double handful of dog food in the bellhousing. Apparently it sat for a bit with the starter removed (had a new one on it when I got it) and someone was setting up a winter hideaway.

I thought you were going to post a picture of yourself standing in the engine bay.
I find pieces of insect, baby birds, maple seed, worms and other stuff left by the Chipmunks that reside in my back yard. Your critter must be a bit larger to be able to haul something that large up into the engine.
That looks more like an American Black Walnut. Around here, Chestnuts grow in a spiney shell. Reminds me of sea urchins.

I've always thought that's what the passenger seat was for.

We've got those pointy ones here too, call them horse chestnuts... Don't know if that's the right name, but that's what we called 'em as kids. Was jacking up the car today to remove my rear struts and another one rolled out from the right front wheel well. I'd better start driving it more often!

Yeah, it'd be horrible to have one of those things fall out while driving and hit a member of a motorcycle gang. Funny, how we're so geographically far apart but we also called them horse chestnuts or buckeyes.

Looks like a walnut. Thats a very agile squirrel to get it on top the engine.

Though I doubt a nut that big is in there, you may want to check your heater box for squirrel nests.
