A Pennsylvania woman was driving her car when she smelled something burning and heard a strange noise.
"Here's a little PSA for everyone on this rainy Monday," Chris Persic wrote in a Facebook post Monday about the Comical situation his wife, holly, found herself in after opening the hood of her car.
"Sent from the squirrels' haul,
" I got a clean-up and over-the-top. " 200 – not an exaggeration – walnuts and grass under the hood, "he continued. "It took almost an hour, and we were able to clean it enough."
The shop reportedly added an additional half of the trashcan's worth of nuts to the engine, according to CBS Pittsburgh. Luckily, the rodents' collection did not do any lasting damage on the vehicle.
Chris added that his car had started to shake after it began to accelerate and the "check engine light" turned on , He wrote that he suspects the furry critters.
"My truck may have a squirrel chew through / pull out a fuel injector hose," he said. "What absolutely nuts … no pun intended."
The couple's black walnut tree appears to be the source of the squirrels' winter snacks. Chris told CBS Pittsburgh he had recently been wondering where all of the fall walnuts disappeared to.
"Funny thing is I'm thinking of how to deal with the tree and how many walnuts have fallen" – there really are not many on the ground, "Persic told the outlet.
Now, it seems they have their answer.
Chris finished the story with some of the words saying "What do you want to do with a car?" every once in awhile. "
