Driving in high water

Recommended Posts

Living in Houston TX, we get street flooding, What is the max level of water should I except to traverse. unlike those autos that have air input low on the car. The C4 intake is high on the rear cover. I know that the Alarm CPU is under the drivers seat so no water should enter the cockpit.

If you kneel down and look at the bottom of the engine. You'll see the headers are really low and the ignition coils are not very high either (rear wheel center level). The next will be the little holes at the bottom of the airbox (rear bumper level) where water can be sucked in the engine.


Agree with White.

Water can be very damaging if it goes anywhere it's not supposed to.  This would be anywhere that is 'sealed' and lubricated.  Places like CV joints and transaxles.  I'm not sure where the breather line is for the the transmission, but it is probably not very high.  Also, if you stall and water is above your tailpies, don't try and restart.  Your pipes will fill with water once the stream of outgoing exhaust gas stops.
