On rainy days, be sure to check if the air filter is in the water
The air filter mainly filters impurities and dust in the air and then enters the engine. Generally, the intake of the car is relatively low, which means that the wading depth of the car is not deep. When the vehicle is wading, the water may enter the engine through the air inlet. First check the air filter and air intake pipe to check the dry and wet condition of the parts. If it is found to be non-dry, it is very likely that water will enter the engine and need to be disposed of in time.
In rainy weather, the air filter is easy to enter the water, especially when passing through the accumulated road surface, once it enters the water, it may cause serious mechanical accidents. When the engine’s air filter is found to be in the water, do not use the engine. Once it is started, the water enters the engine combustion chamber and, in severe cases, the engine is scrapped. After collecting the car, it is necessary to wipe the rainwater on the engine in time to check whether the generator belt has cracks, so as not to shorten the service life of the car. When the water is too deep, try to bypass the road. If it is impossible to bypass, use a rubber hose to connect to the exhaust pipe and point the nozzle to the top so that the water cannot enter the exhaust pipe.
