What happened to this car is nuts. 200 walnuts, to be exact

What happened to this car is nuts. 200 walnuts, to be exact

Instead, she found over 200 walnuts and grass that took the Pittsburgh couple nearly an hour to dig out.

Holly Persic was driving to a library in Allegheny County, Pennsylvania, when she noticed there was something wrong with her vehicle.

Holly called her husband on Monday as she driving near the Northland Library about auto troubles.

The Persics say there were more than 200 walnuts stuffed under the car's hood.

She told him that she smelled burning from the engine of her Kia and that there was a odd, rattling sound.

Mr Persic said that he got the vehicle checked out by a mechanic, who found more walnuts underneath the engine. When she popped the hood, she found walnuts and grass piled over the engine. After the Sorento was brought into a fix shop, technicians removed some underbody panels and this caused countless walnuts to fall to the ground.

Amazingly, they found even more walnuts burrowed inside the vehicle.

Several walnuts are shown hidden under the hood of Holly Persic's SUV on October 7, 2019.

Chris raced over to meet his wife at the library and the two began picking out as many walnuts as they could in the pouring rain.

He said: "They [mechanics] cleaned it out and checked all of the wiring and moving parts, but said there really wasn't any damage". "Turns out my truck may have had a squirrel chew through or pull the fuel injector hose out", he added. "Was absolutely pun intended".

Walnuts and grass hidden by squirrels are seen under the hood of a vehicle.

"Long story short, if you park outside, do yourself a favour and check under the hood every once in a while".
