    Default 2014 Mustang GT - Air filter chewed by rodent

    Guys I need some advice. A rodent crawled up in my filter housing and chewed the paper filter (see attached pictures). The car stalled and pegged on multiple issues due to the filter being sucked into the throttle body. I pulled the housing, throttle body, and vacuumed out all the debris. The car seems to run ok now (no O2 sensor faults) but the idle rpms jump around often and the cat efficiency pegged after running it for a few miles. I'm going to change the plugs this weekend and see if there's any other damage. Do you have any advice or suggestions?

    Place some Bounce fabric softening sheets around the engine bay and you won't any more rodent problems.

    Does that really work? I'll give it a try and see what happens. Cheaper than the electrical deterrents that also have mixed reviews.
