He said: "They [mechanics] cleaned it out and checked all of the wiring and moving parts, but said there really wasn't any damage".

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

Chris Persic says his wife, Holly Persic, called from the library Monday to tell him about a burning smell and weird noise coming from her vehicle.

They had noticed there weren't very many walnuts around the yard, given how big the tree is, but they said they didn't think they would find them under the hood of their vehicle.

It's never a good sign when your auto is making noises and smells like its burning, but one Pennsylvania woman was shocked to discover what was wrong with her Kia Sorento. They were also around the engine and these were black and "definitely roasting".

The couple thinks the extreme amount of Walnuts were placed there by local rodents who were collecting a stash.

Holly Persic had her vehicle inspected last month but hadn't looked under the hood since then, her husband said.

Social media users couldn't resist make a few puns about the amusing situation.

Another said: 'Somebody will be going nuts looking for his walnuts'. "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", he wrote in a post that has since gone viral.

"Was absolutely pun intended", Mr Persic said in his Facebook post.

"Long story short, if you park outside, do yourself a favor and check under the hood every once in a while", he wrote in a Facebook post October 7 that has since been shared over 600 times.
