Looks like they ate your carbuerator!

Years ago I went out & fired up the bbq, without opening it, & in a couple minutes it began to smoke & an awful stink, turned it off, opened the lid & found they'd packed full of grass, dog food, rags & all were smoldering, DW said "throw the whole thing away & go buy another one, I'm not eating anything that comes out of that one!!".
CrazyCain, what does "Sprekin" mean? I can imagine what you actually called it!

My brother had the same problem. His company car had the air cleaner and intake manifold packed full 3 times. Fortunately (for him) the company service plan payed for it - more than $1000 each time. He found a product that smelled like Coyote urine at one of the big box hardware/lumber stores and spread it on the ground around the tires. He had no more problems so long as he reapplied whenever the car was moved.

We spray our engine compartment with an anti-rodent spray from Amazon, peppermint and other smells the little b*&#*@s hate. Rodents ate the wiring on our new Toyota Tundra to the tune of about $4000. Fortunately, all but $100 covered by comprehensive insurance.

Packrats do this in my area, major PIA. If hoods aren't kept open, they will invade. I finally bought rid-a-rats > https://smile.amazon.com/Packrat-Rod...ywords=ridarat <for each vehicle. No noticeable battery drain and I haven't had a problem in 1-1/2 years.
