Sorry to hear that Kevin. Hope it's not expensive to repair. I wonder what kind of rodent chews hoses?

Years ago we had an unmarked take-home police car that squirrels ate the wiring harness out of three times, right up by the brake booster. You weren't mulching food while doing this to leave "flavor" on the hoses were you? Might try wiping everything down with some rubbing alchol.

If you want to keep rodents out from under the hood, try mothballs. Easiest way is to put a bunch of mothballs in an old sock tied at the top. I had mice getting into a couple of my vehicles, and this trick worked for me.
