Assessing the Damage: The First Step to Recovery

Before diving into repair options, a thorough assessment of the flood damage is essential. Water intrusion can affect various components, including the engine, transmission, electrical systems, and interior. Here’s what to look for:

  • Engine and Transmission: If water has infiltrated the engine and transmission, immediate action is crucial. Severe damage may necessitate engine replacement or rebuilding.
  • Electrical Systems: Water and electricity don’t mix well. Check the vehicle’s electrical systems, including the battery, alternator, and wiring, for signs of water damage.
