rodents in engine compartment


Topic starter

i park my car fir periods of time where I work, and when I come back off the road I find sometimes something is making a nest in my cars engine compartment. We thought it was a squirrel but now we learned it’s mice.

some even have had their wires chewed and cannot get their vehicle started.

any suggestions?

Thanks mate!!!! My O2 sensor and mass flow problems kinda stopped after I turned on my AC...I think they didn't like the cold an left. I also found a nest under the brake handle compartment. But anyone know how to take off the AC vents in a 199 Isuzu Rodeo? I think they made a nest in there cuz I couldn't turn the vent switch to point anywhere but the head for ac/heat. Now its free but I think I want to clean itand make sure they can't get in with wire and peppermint oil...


some people say dryer sheets work well.

I find cats work the best for keeping rodents away from the home.


Go to the Dollar Store, buy a rubber snake and put it in your engine compartment.  The mice will flee in terror.

That won’t work
