I have a 2000 Corolla CE and had to travel through torrential rains today and some of the roads were flooded (I’d say about 1 feet flooded).
How would an engine get flooded? Like where would the water go into the engine? (at least on my corolla). Scotty Kilmer, a popular mechanic, said that they are intake vents on the bottom where water can get sucked into the engine and that because water does not compress, it might blow a hole in the engine.
If I did have to go through about 1-2 ft of water, is there any advice I should follow?
