Water entering the chassis is a common car failure. It may adversely affect the performance and safety of the vehicle. Before dealing with this problem, we first need to understand the causes and hazards of water intrusion.

There are many reasons for water in the vehicle chassis

Rain or flood

If the vehicle is damaged by heavy rainfall or floods, parts with poor sealing at the bottom may be intruded by water.

Car leaks

Leaking components include the braking system, cooling system, and air conditioning system.

Broken parts

Such as brake hose rupture, cooling system pipe rupture, etc.

If you don’t handle the water in the vehicle chassis, it may cause many problems.

Electrical system failure

Water entering a vehicle’s electrical system can cause short circuits or damage electronic components. This may result in difficulty starting, light failure or instrument panel malfunction. It may even affect the entire vehicle’s circuit system.

Engine damage

Water intrusion can damage the engine, especially if the water gets inside the cylinders. Mixing water with gasoline can cause uneven pressure in the cylinder, causing engine failure. In severe cases, major repairs or engine replacement may be required.

Braking system failure

Water entering the brake system may cause brake failure or weaken the braking effect. Then it will increase the risk of accidents. This is a very dangerous situation and requires repair as soon as possible.

Chassis corrosion and rust

After water intrusion, if the chassis components are not dried and cleaned, the corrosive nature of the water may cause chassis components to rust or corrode. This may result in component damage and more serious failure.
