Watch For Small Animals Hiding In Car Engines

With colder temperatures in effect, remember that warm engines attract cats and other small animals who may crawl up under the hood. To avoid injuring any animals, bang on your car's hood to scare them away before starting your engine.

Good advice! This happened to us twice! A simple knock on the hood can save you $ at the repair shop and the vet!

This is such a great tip! Last year we had a chipmunk get into our exhaust. We didn't realize it and the little rascal died when we turned our car on. Our car smelled really bad and we couldn't figure out what it was [we had a new car]. We took our car in to get it checked out and they found the little chipmunk. We felt terrible. The folks at the dealership said this happens often in the cold winter weather. Thanks for sharing this excellent tip!
