What if My Car Was Flooded? 

 National Auto Dealers Association (NADA) recommendations:

  • Don't start a flooded vehicle until a thorough inspection and cleaning is performed. Starting the car with water in the engine could cause more damage.
  • Take immediate steps to dry the vehicle as much as possible to reduce the length of time vehicle components are exposed to water.
  • Get the vehicle towed to higher ground if floodwaters are receding.
  • Remove all moisture from the car if the interior got wet with a wet/dry vacuum. Remove seats if possible and use fans to quicken the drying process.
  • Contact your insurance company or agent and promptly report the exposure of your car to water.
  • Record the highest level of water exposure on the flooded vehicle.
  • Contact a certified technician to arrange for an inspection and evaluation of all mechanical components, including the engine, transmission, axles, brake and fuel system for water contamination.
  • Flush and replace all fluids, oils and lubricants, and replace all filters and gaskets for components exposed to water. While a vehicle may drive with fluids that have experienced water intrusion, extended internal exposure to water will increase the level of damage to the engine and other vehicle components.
  • Many repair facilities recommend a thorough cleaning of brake parts and repacking of bearings, particularly for rear-drive vehicles. In front-wheel-drive vehicles, bearings are sealed.
  • Some newer vehicles have padding and insulation that don't easily release moisture. In this situation, it's most effective to replace the materials to prevent the forming of mold or mildew that may contaminate the entire vehicle.
