    park the car at highest possible place and walk - Unless you really wish to DESTROY your vehicle inside out.


    I went to fishery yesterday - in just 4 inches of water i went through less then 50 meters and it took daylights out of me due to smell, reaching home was a task of lifetime, some of the water seeped in from undercarriage hole in rear floor which i forgot to place back on Monday evening. ..................... i had to take interior flooring at home and it is resting in open sun after steam wash for 30 minutes liquid soap mixed in it .... stinking was so bad even my pets went inside the house ........ normally they sit and watch the car wash....

    Maybe HE NEEDS to drive through water, you could get out of car n walk but maybe not him due to whatever issue.

    I prefer to press the pedal hard n take speed around 20 km/h. For my alto it would make good enough wave to get the water clear temporarily.

    3 ft water would be windshield level for a road going car. and the only chance you have is to drive at a constant speed, if you try to move it in water from a standstill - your clutch is already wet and slipping and moving such a large body in deep water is terrible in the first place.

    3 foot water is too much, unless the intake is up on the roof and the exhaust too.

    i've driven my 95 corolla in upto 2-2.5ft water once or twice. was a scary experience. later found out muddy water had come upto battery terminal level...

    and at that moment i had envy for the guy right next to me sitting in his vigo with a "im bored" kinda expression on his face when everyone was pulling their hair out.

    the exhaust pipe in a 4 stroke multiple cylinder engine has enough pressure to move the air out of the exhaust pipe anyway - I dont get why people have this false notion. Its only valid on 2 strokes where the exhaust actually gets sucked back into the cylinder.

    The engine shutoff happens when the electrical system goes damp from the high level of water. If it does, dont kill the battery, remove and dewater the distributor cap with WD40 and apply loads of petroleum jelly for water insulation, hard core (read insane) offroaders also use contraceptive condoms with petroleum jelly on old distributor and HT lead type ignition systems.

    let me finish the sentence,

    and screw up the injection pump, have you ever touched a running diesel injection pump, it is blazing HOT and quenching with loads of cold water will warp it enough to sieze solid or break.

    Generally, if the water is deeper than the bottom of your doors or the bottom third of your wheels, it is inadvisable to attempt driving through it. Seek a detour rather than braving the flood and risking damage to your electronic control systems. Attempting to go through deep water can ruin any of these systems, creating a repair bill in the thousands of dollars. Where water has flooded onto the road, drive very slowly and cautiously. Never drive through moving water if you can't see the ground through it: you and your car could be swept off the road, possibly finishing you both.
