Spread a few bags of kitty litter under your car. On top of the kitty litter pour two quarts of ammonia. Over that lay out a package of those dryer sheets and cover them with mothballs. Cayenne pepper sprinkled over that. A few mouse traps, baited with peanut butter inside the car. Don't forget the predator pee around the periphery. If it doesn't blow up when you start the motor, you should be good to go without rodents. Or not.†

So, perhaps a scattering of cayenne pepper under the vehicle for the little rodent feet to tread through, along with a screen-covered tray of mothballs for the smell, might discourage them from exploring the area further?
Good luck,

Someone told me to try those smelly papery sheets people put in the dryer with their laundry. She said she used them successfully in her ski machine to keep critters out of the exhaust pipes.
