Follow our Vehicle Flood Damage Checklist
1. Survey any potential damage: First, note the depth of the floodwaters, how they relate to
your car. Do not, however, try to start your car - this will cause even more damage water has
gotten in the engine.
2. Act quickly, but safely: Salt water - which is more damaging than fresh water - can make
the chances of corrosion much higher. With this in mind, start drying out your vehicle as soon
as possible, and contact a towing service to get it to higher ground.
3. Check under the hood: Check your vehicle's oil dipstick, remove all water-damaged
cylinders, and change both the vehicle's oil and transmission fluid.
4. Clean the vehicle's interior: Use a wet/dry vacuum to collect standing water, and cloth
towels to absorb any water that has soaked into the car's interior. Also be sure to check any
electrical components, but be sure to do so safely.
5. Check the car's fuel tank and line: Use a store-bought siphon pump to remove fuel from
your vehicle's fuel tank. If you do find any water, you'll want to empty the tank completely.
6. Call your insurance company: Flood damage is generally covered by comprehensive
insurance, so even if you don't have collision coverage, you may be covered for repairs or

victims and families who have suffered domestic violence, natural disaster, medical emergencies, and
other hardships. Realty Car Replacement Program also gives Assistance to military families and other
