HEATED CAR: Attention, there is a risk …

The flood water carries fine sand and clay, which acts as an abrasive that damages the bearings, constant velocity joints, plain bearings and possibly the connecting rod shells, gearbox and cylinder liner.

The second aspect is electricity – the onboard network is energized and full of contact pairs. The water in the contacts causes both their oxidation and the erosion of the contact surface due to electrolysis and erosion. Humidity will completely destroy some sensors (such as air weight).

All porous materials absorb moisture, which is full of contents from rinsed cesspools, septic tanks and sewage treatment plants. This cannot be removed and does not only apply to carpets and seats, but also cushioning materials, but also to the panels and hollow body parts.

If the sludge also reaches the operating charges, it will act as a fine abrasive paste (in addition to clogging smaller channels and filters). It destroys pumps and injections in the fuel, clogs the radiator and heat exchangers in the coolant, causes the brake pistons to seize in the brake fluid, and the water sharply lowers the boiling point, so steaming brakes generates steam in the brake cylinder and loses all effect.
