It should be a spiral copper coil:


While nobody knows what really happened, Brandon Hull was missing
said arrestor and discovered one day that he was missing his dipstick.

Somehow the dipstick was forced up hard enough to dent the hood liner
and then fall out of the engine compartment- I suggested -maybe- a
crankcase explosion of some sort, which seemed like an incredible
long shot...but I guess there's a reason that little coil is in there.

It stands as one of the greater list mysteries...
