How To Drive In Deep Floods
Living near a road that floods....a lot...I have seen many drivers fall
victim to the floods but over the years I have observed the best way to get
through a deep flood. It is always best not to drive through flood water
but if you have no choice or you find yourself in deeper water than you
were expecting, here's my advice on how to get across to the other side.
Enter the water at walking pace. As your car hits the water, it will create
a bow wave. You should follow the bow wave at about 3 mph (or a brisk
walk). Trying to go faster will
increase the water height at the front of your car and could result in
water being sucked up into the air intake.
If you are in really deep water (well over your door sills), slow down to a
crawl, slip the clutch and rev the engine to stop water getting into your
Exhaust. As long as the water level
stays below your air intake (which is usually just below the front of your
bonnet), you should be able to get yourself out, but you may find you start
to float (rear usually floats first) or that water starts seeping in
through the door seals but don't panic and maintain that slow pace to
preserve your engine.
Water in an engine can result in broken con rods and pistons which usually
means your car will be written off or you will face a big bill for a new

2000 Dodge Neon Head and Timing Belt - Part 1
Inspection - This is Gregg's Car. The water pump seized and blew the
timing belt. We decided to take it all the way down to the head because
there was some question that a valve had bent as well. But other than a
TON of carbon, it turned out to be OK. more at http://www.reinsmith.net
