somebody must have been working on your car.
when was the last time it'* been in a shop?
any signs of rust on the wrench. Maybe its been there for a while.

Were you slightly intoxicated while writing the original post?

That is a very odd place to find a wrench...maybe someone was messing with your car? Do you leave ur windows open?

The wrench had to have been in the engine bay already... there isn't any way you could have picked it up while driving over and have it land in the engine bay. i've droped tools in places before and they don't show for a LONG LONG time. also gained some tools too, from past owners droping them
