Default Update on 1998 Camry Problem

Many of you may have read that my Camry was running as if it had a fuel
starvation or similar problem. Checked the air cleaner. Sensors... Fuel
delivery... etc. All was fine.

Took the shop a day to find it, but there was a chipmunk nest in my
electricals... Disconnected the PC if you will. Ruined it too due to a
chewed wire short...

$350.

Last year it was $200 for an air filter housing with a nest and chewed
plastic parts....

Anyone want some free (dead) chipminks? I'm gonna go kill them now.

Well, I'll tell ya. I replaced the hood on my 'hachiroku' 2 years ago, and
after being parked for the winter all I hear is acorns rolling around when
I open the hood...

Think I'll join you on that expedition...

Had mice get in an engine bay once and eat the insulation off the wiring.
Didn't know it until they let the smoke out of something, didn't start a
fire but I had to do a lot of rewiring. Guess they were enjoying the ride,
must have been adrenelin junkies as I had a lead foot then. :-)Car looked
funny after that with all the mouse traps under the hood. :-)
