Car Care Clinic
You may have bats in your belfry, but how about rats in your manifold, or mice in your motor? It is a myth that small autos are powered by hamsters running on exercise wheels, but it is an unfortunate fact that rodents can live and create mayhem in engine compartments. In fact, the damage done to vehicles by mice, rats, and their many cousins can be considerable.
Gnawing wires, ripping out insulation for nesting materials, or squirreling away caches of nuts and trash in car and truck engines can destroy some of man's most sophisticated transportation technology and cause significant financial loss. If you think you have a mice or rodent problem in your garage or carport, let your mechanic know.
