Rats may, and often do, climb into warm car engines on windy winter nights if you are unwilling to litter your house, yard, and watershed with diphacinone, brodifacoum, and warfarin. Anyone familiar with rodents knows the ro to the dent means those bastards have to chew constantly to keep their perpetual ivory machine from self-destruction.

While strictly speaking there is nothing edible in an automotive engine, there are plenty of plastic parts and wires to chew on. Apparently many of them have something to do with making a car start in the morning.
