Why It’s Dumb To Drive Through Water

As you probably know, sucking of water through your car’s air induction system is never a good idea. Water going where only air is supposed to can wreak havoc on engine and making this mistake might be a lot easier than you had originally thought.
This time, we take a look inside of a Scotty Kilmer video that shows you just how easy it can be to suck up water, even when traveling through a puddle that’s only a couple of inches deep, and how exactly this affects your engine when it gets in places it doesn’t belong.
With a very helpful visual aid, Scotty shows us exactly what happens when the non-compressible liquid gets into a place that needs to be compressed. As you could imagine, the pressure caused by this needs to get out somewhere and it just so happens that something is going to give to allow it to release.
Check out the video below to see exactly what could happen if you find yourself in the oh so unfortunate situation of hydrolocking your engine.
