After we successfully passed through, my wife told me: Nakikita na niya yung baha sa bintana niya, around 1 1/2 feet from the window na lang and she was looking around the door if the floodwater would start to enter!

    I eventually reached my destination and checked the car. I had basura sticking to the front grill, aside from some weeds sticking out the front bumper. So far, all lights, and my original horn and 2 sets hella supertones still functioned. Yung bag nasa cargo box, basa na ang bottom ng bag, which meant pumasok na sa likod yung tubig!

    Kudos to our Strada! Pero di ko na uulitin! My heart, my knees! Di ko kaya!
    Whoa! Ang lupit nyan, boss! Buti hindi pumasok sa air intake ang tubig. Hanggang upper level ng front bumper pa lang na-try ko, with splashes just reaching the headlight. Di basta-basta papasok ang tubig sa cabin natin. Double kase ang weather strip/gasket (isa sa door at isa sa door sill). Unless binutasan yung rubber cap (around 1.5inches diameter; visible from under the vehicle) sa ilalim ng left rear passenger floor mat (most technicians use this to route wires from the outside into the cabin when installing aftermarket accessories). Yung foglights din natin di basta-basta papasok ang tubig (nagtaka nga ako kase may excess heat outlet tube naman siya sa itaas). Yung disc horns water resistant compared to trumpet/snail shell horns. Wag mo lang gamitin ang foglights at horn pag lumusob sa baha para siguradong di masira.

    Just to add on the clutch thing, I actually don't use the clutch if fording flooded streets. The idea is to avoid the clutch slipping. Just transfer to the lowest gear (4L if you have) and keep enough distance on the car in front of you. Or best is let the car in front passed and clear the flooded area before you go (if possible). My .01 cents

    Nice experience though.

    for my 2010 Strada 2.5L M/T GLX my averages are:
    Regular Diesel (Shell:NOT FuelSave): 9.5 km/l
    V-Power Diesel: 10.3 km/l

    manual recording lang po ako sir. based on trip meter and pump meter when refilling. around 4 cycles done for each type of fuel. am currently sticking to VPower since pareho lang sa peso/kilometer.

    hope this helps!

    good day to all,

    i have been asking this before sorry to ask it again, but how could i know if my turbo is still working, can this be detected by the computer in the dealership. Im just worry lang po kasi i usually turn off the engine after a long run, diba dapat pala wait for 3 minutes before turning off the engine to prevent damage to the turbo,

    Thanks :boom1:

    Pwede din maglow-RPM driving (around 1,500) a few minutes before reaching your destination. Para maka-cool down na ang turbo at ma-lubricate ng maayos. This is what I do on highway and city driving since I didn't have a turbo-timer installed. Or kung nagmamadali talaga, I just lock the doors with the remote while the engine is still running. Just be sure to turn off the engine after a few minutes. Hehe.

    ganyan din napansin ko when I compared both....mas matipid ang V-Power kesa yung regular...

    pero try mo bro...Spirited driving mode...hehehe.... yung experience ko parang expedition kung kumain ng Krudo yung 3.2 ko na strada pag sa V-Power diesel ang gamit hahaha! I've proven this when we've done a funrun in La union....kala ko may butas yung tanke hehehe.... pero ang ganda lang walang kabitin bitin sa performance unlike pag regular diesel may apak ako sa silinyador na parang minsan eh bitin hehe tapos lesser fumes when accelerating....

    It is not wise to use clutch when fording deep floods. Also turn off vehicle's aircon.
