In the wake of devastating rainstorms that caused massive flooding across
Houston and other parts of Texas, people are finding that their cars are
having significant troubles as a result.
When water pours into the motor of a car, it can jam particular cylinders
and cause what is known as “hydrolocking.” Usually hydrolocking
occurs when a car becomes mostly or fully submerged in a lake or a river
after a dangerous accident, but the pounding rain that recently hit Houston
was enough to steep cars in water – with levels reaching well above
the hood. Without proper and immediate repair, water internalized in your
engine can cause devastating damage that could render it useless.
If your car’s motor didn’t suffer from the rainstorms, there
is a good chance that the interior of your vehicle did. Water damage to
interiors can lead to ruined surfaces, foul smells, and fried electronics.
In many cases, your insurance provider won’t offer a dime for the
damage caused to waterlogged vehicles and you will have to pay for the
repairs out of your own pocket.
