check under your engine cover!!!
I had a coworker checking out my Jeep last night, another Cummins gear head like me. I popped the hood and he asked what it looked like under the plastic cover, so I popped it off.
HUGE mouse nest under there. Passenger side, rear of the intake, there's a little pocket next to a rubber block and they had filled it full of what might have been pieces of a sleeping bag. They also chewed up the white wrap on the EGR tube.
Has anyone run the diesel WITHOUT the cosmetic cover? I know lots of generators need their covers to regulate airflow and stuff...I'm willing to bet, though, if there wasn't a cover making them feel "safe", the mice would stay out. Thoughts?
