driving on flooded streets.

This is the ber month and its the time of the yr for monstrous 7hr epic proportions rainfall. if you are a cyclist and  own a bike, its ok to use your bike beyond the safe water line level.

but if you drive a car? DON'T

note: before you read the rules, if possible dont wade through flooded streets. repairs can be costly.

1. Do not drive through flooded areas. If you see a flooded road ahead, turn around. Find another route to your destination. 

2. Consider your level of intake (red circle on the image) where flood water will take in and may damage your engine.

3. Safe wading thru floods is marked yellow as "water line" on the image. This is just below your Maximum level of tolerance.

4. Safest would be half of your tire.

5. Turn-off your a/c compressor (use fan only) so your aux fan will not push more water into the engine compartment.

5. Check your differential gear oils for water contamination after that flood-wading experience.

In any case, if you fail in your quest to get to the other side, like the brave ones who failed yesterday, then do not start the car, do not  open your hood to be the know-it-all guy or just to check the engine. (for what)? seek a professional. or Call an authorized or reputable repair shop or serviceman to 
have it towed by AAP with a flatbed carrier.(and bring to your suking repair shop like Sanzei in Banawe) 
Autobots in Shorthorn project8, my point is leave it to professionals, they know what they are doing and you dont.
Do not act as if you know it all, and by all means please resist the urge to salvage your 
investments (notebook, money bag , loot bag because they are of no value now) by doing things to your car without professional advice, since this may lead to more problems.
