Thanks for the comments. My other vehicles are all older and smaller and have easy to reach covers or peep holes, but this one definitely does not. The nearest thing is the oil filler port, but I...

Thanks for the link. Very clear info there. Alas, not the problem, though. Maybe fuel filter next...? I hate searching around randomly when I only have ten minutes at a time.

As a fire stop or fume protection? There already was an opening there for a heat duct to the garage. I thought it was pretty useless, undersized for any effective heating of a two car garage, and...
