FYI Good fire starter located on top of our engines,

So i was changing the oil and fuel filters this weekend and just happened to have a little extra light in the engine compartment and found what appeared to be an extreme amount of dryer lint looking material along with leaves and dirt on the top of the motor behind the oil and fuel filters but infront of the turbo. It was down far enough that i had to get a long screw driver and a extension for my vaccuum cleaner to get it all out. This stuff looked like it would easily catch fire and i guess i am lucky that it didnt'. Just wanted to let you all know so you could check to see if you have a lint trap that needs to be cleaned,
