Have you wondered what to do if your car gets stuck in water? Actually, many times it happens in the monsoon season that we park our car somewhere and go away, but due to heavy rains, water freezes in many places and water freezes near the car. Apart from this, there have been many occasions when flood water gets inside the car. In such a situation, the first question that comes to mind is what to do now? So today we are going to answer this question for you. So, if you ever get stuck in such a situation, then you know what to do?
If your car gets flooded, do not attempt to restart the engine. This can cause serious damage. In such a case, you may have to replace the engine if it goes bad. Before restarting the engine, the plug and injector must be removed. In such a situation the vehicle should be ejected safely and it is best to move towards higher ground. However, the vehicle should not be driven even when the water is low.
Here are 6 quick tips that can help you when there is water on the road.
Never enter water that you cannot cross on foot or water that is not 6 inches or so between your tires. Avoid crossing running water in all cases. Other than this
- Go into the water at a speed of 3-4 kmph.
- Cross the water at a speed of 5-7 kmph.
- Drive on the highest point in the middle of the road.
- Let the cars cross the road one by one.
- After getting out of the water, slow down and dry the brakes.
