This is a great help. My problem is different as I live in the country and I had a mouse eat through the plastic grid that is supposed to keep foreign objects out. The mouse died and the stench is nasty. Fixed the intake by attaching 1/2 hardware cloth. Hopefully that will dissuade any critter from chewing their way in again. (Also removed a massive nest)
BTW. 2000 SE with 265K miles. Also, forgot about the timing belt the first time. It only lasted 198K miles. Still getting about 30 MPG in the summer and about 28 MPG in the winter. Only real problem is lack of power. I doubt I can claim 90 HP any more. Too bad they no longer make the SE. Nice little car for commuting.
