But before I saw your reply, I was hoping this morning that it was an air intake, as the engine coughed and smoked to life as if choked for air. I was hoping that poking the snout and rearranging the debris (before starting this thread) was the cause, but apparently not. It ran fine after a minute or so, but time will tell. It's definitely not normal for this car.
