Automobiles experience damage in a number of different forms, and sometimes there is no way to avoid certain events. Flooding is one type of damage that usually cannot be avoided. When flooding has occurred, there are ways to deal with it.

The first and most important tip to remember is not to start a vehicle that was flooded. Water can become trapped inside the engine or engine components, and starting the vehicle has the possibility of destroying the engine. Open up the vehicle as much as possible and try to get the vehicle dry. Specific steps can be taken depending on what areas are affected, but the best option is to have the vehicle towed to a mechanic. Learn more about dealing with flood damage through the video above.
