What I found under the hood....

So, i opened up the hood just a few minutes ago to install a K&N air filter. And what, to my shock and bemusement, did I find?



That's right, a freakin BAGEL. A BAGEL!! Half-eaten, but nonetheless, a BAGEL.

HOW did it get in there? Who knows? I know I'VE never eaten a bagel anywhere NEAR the car, and I've certainly never eaten one while working on the car, so the only conclusion I can draw is that while I was getting the oil changed the mechanic must have been eating a bagel and left it in my car.

Reason #67499875099343 to as much work on your car yourself as possible. :shock: :shock:

Re: What I found under the hood....

...cause, I mean, there's no way to cram a bagel in there with the hood closed ...right?

In a way, this beats the milk incident. In terms of amusement anyway. The milk incident trumps all in terms of aggravation though.

Re: What I found under the hood....

Haha, your lucky.

Mechanics at my dealership left my oil cap off and on top of the radiator while I drove around for half a day. Oil was all over my engine bay.

Re: What I found under the hood....

I found Funions sprinkled around the top of my engine last year, but a bagel is definitely more surprising.
