Holly Persic had her auto inspected last month but hadn't looked under the hood since then, her husband said.
"My wife called me from Northland Library and said that her vehicle smelt like it was burning, and was making a weird sound", her husband Chris wrote in a Facebook post.
The mechanics reportedly found enough walnuts to fill half a trashcan. Chris told her to pop open the hood and she was surprised to find the engine bay was nearly completely covered by walnuts and grass. The walnuts started falling only a few weeks ago.More news: Google Pixel Watch to debut next week alongside the Pixel 4

Chris went over and worked for one full hour to clear what the busy squirrels had brought in: over 200 walnuts and grass, which they even managed to get under the engine.
Walnuts they couldn't reach fell out and covered the floor.
'They put it up on the lift and I guess there's a protective plate underneath, ' Chris said, 'so when they took that off all the walnuts fell out all over the place'. "My truck may have had a squirrel chew through/pull out a fuel injector hose, and Holly's looked like they were storing up for the next 3 winters", Chris writes on social media. "Was absolutely nuts.no pun intended".
"Long story short, if you park outside, do yourself a favour and check under the hood every once in a while", he wrote.
