This vlogger learned a valuable lesson about driving through puddles with a car, and so did I. He begins the drive through the puddle at 7:28.
In short, this is the puddle he was looking to go through. Yeah, I know. It looks more like a small stock tank, but he was determined to continue. I was yelling, “No, no, no” as he began. He made it a couple feet in before quickly backing out.
Got the pretty engine dirty. I never knew water would splash up that high into an engine bay. If it were mine, I’d have to have it washed. Just couldn’t drive a dirty engine around.
So think about this experience before going through deep puddles.
