Absolutely do not attempt to start the car a few times when the vehicle is turned off, this action will cause the car to be badly damaged, more seriously, water will enter the engine causing the hydrodynamic.
Prevention is better than cure.
If faced with flooded areas, the first thing is to determine what water level and your vehicle is; low or high roar; SUV or sedan / hatchback. If the water is not more than 20cm or not too below the door, it is safe for the car to move safely. If you are unsure, do not drive through flooded areas.
Do not kick the gas pedal and check the brake when passing through the flooded section.
The kicking of the strong throttle will create a large inertia that makes the water easily spill over the grille area and into the intake duct; In addition, after going through the flooded area, take some time to check the brakes to remove the water as well as the dirt and rubbish on the brake disc.
Do not open the door, so turn off the AC air conditioning system
When the vehicle moves through the flooded area, the driver must not open the door to prevent water from entering the vehicle; The air conditioner should be turned off and the vehicle moved to No. 1, keeping the gas level in moderation to the end of the flooded area. For automatic cars, it is recommended to switch to semi-automatic mode.
Absolutely do not start the engine, try to restart the car.
Absolutely do not attempt to start the car a few times when the vehicle is turned off, this action will cause the car to be badly damaged, more seriously, water will enter the engine causing the hydrodynamic. If you start the car after it is submerged, it will damage the connecting parts between the piston and lead to breakage of the boundary arm; Severe cases may require replacement of engine systems, electrical systems and of course costs are not cheap at all. Instead, push the car to a dry place and call for rescue.
Go slow, keep the throttle steady
Going slowly will help the vehicle to better track the road, reducing the load on the slippery brake system when forced to stop. Going slowly also helps us easily detect road obstacles such as manhole covers and manhole covers.
After removing the vehicle from the flooded area, conduct an interior inspection; If water gets into the interior, it will destroy quickly; Use any towel or paper to absorb any remaining water and then use a fan or dryer to dry the interior.
Check the engine compartment.
Open the capo and observe, if there is a lot of standing water in the air filter, engine or oil tank, the risk is that your vehicle has been caught in the engine. For ordinary people who are not technically knowledgeable, the best way is to have technicians check and repair. With new cars, the fluid system is tightly sealed, but there is a risk of leaking in older cars. Therefore, in addition to machine oil, check other liquids such as brake fluid, power steering oil, cool water.
Check electrical system
If the vehicle can be booted, check all electrical components such as headlights, turn signal lights, air conditioners, sound, door locks, window power adjustment, open the power trunk, adjust the seat, even mirrors interior lights. If any of the details does not work smoothly, it is a water sign that makes the electrical system flicker.
