- Houston, TX
It rained real hard and real fast here in Houston today. I was in a not great part of town and the roads were very flooded. Me being the guy who thinks he can drive through anything went on w/o fear. I made it to my destination, but commming back was where the trouble lied. I was crossing a deep puddle, well I'd call it a small pond that formed on the road. I looked across the road and saw a chevy truck pushing water with his bumper...this scared me a little. Than my engine begin to want to stall and the check engine light came on. Apprantly I was in some deep water. I drove it to a pro care shop, and they ran the electrical check on it. The mass air flow sensor had thrown on the light. My air filter was completly soaked. My question is how high is the air intake? Adjusted for my 31 inch tires, and stock are 28/29 inches about? Everything runs fine now with my new dry filter, and I kept the old one for a back up. I have debree between the top of my front bumper and my body, and also stuff around my fog lights. Is it possible the water came up to the top of my bumper, if only briefly? I'd imagine water that high would have killed my engine? Can a 100 series cross water 2 1/2 feet deep?
