Yes, baka pumasok ang tubig sa clutch area, but its not that bad compared to stalling. Pressing on the clutch may make sediments enter, which is worse. But again, kung yan ang kinatatakutan mo, e di huwag na lang sumugod sa maski anong baha. Just stay and wait for the water to recede, if you can endure the wait. And with the sucky weather we have na madalas na ang baha, better mag MRT na lang kung matatakot tayo na masira ang clutch natin, diba?

    And clutch pedal applies only to manual. Walang clutch pedal ang auto.

    Nahanap ko eto sa internet.

    Tips for Driving In Rain

    This is an excerpt from that article.

    If you determine it's safe to go on, proceed slowly and avoid making large waves in the water. If you have a manual transmission, engage first gear and keep the engine running fast by releasing the clutch just enough to partially engage gear and giving more acceleration than usual. This keeps the exhaust gases moving, helping to prevent water from entering your tailpipe. Vehicles with automatic transmissions should place the car in first gear and feather your brake, slowing the vehicle while at the same time keeping your revs up. Doing this for longer than a few seconds can seriously damage your vehicle and is not recommended.

    Eto naman yung nagsasabi about something entering the clutch plate.

    Water Crossing Qs [Archive] - JK-Forum.com - The Ultimate Jeep JK Wrangler Bulletin Board

    Eto ang sinabi niya tungkol doon.

    If the water is deep enough to flood your clutch plate areas, when you step on that clutch pedal, water can get in between the plates (A little bad), bringing with it, typically, sand, mud, small fish, etc... (A Lot Bad).

    These little particles, especially sand, chew on your plates when you reengage your clutch.

    So, shifting under those conditions can get crud between your plates, and cause an early, or earlier, clutch failure.
    Very informative, bossing.

    I also do clutch-driving when driving through flood waters.

    Yes and yes. 17x7 ata yung wheel ng strada tapos 17x7.5 ata yung sa montero sport. Around +38 ata yung offset nila. Maliit lang yung 0.5 difference. Pero the 245/65r17 will look "lonely" with the generous wheel-well on both vehicles.

    Pickups, SUVs & AUVs normally have 10+ years life cycles. Sedans & CUVs about 4-6 years. Mercedes Benz & BMWs 6-8 years.

    By the way mga Sir, would you know if I can put on something sa key ng strada glx-v? Sobrang bare niya ang parang ang nipis kasi. Yung tipong parang duplicate siya. Kung may malalagay lang sana sa head nung key itself para mas presentable.
    Congrats..finally..naka bili ka na ng Strada..tagal mo na rin balak bumili.. do join us.

    When we were about to leave, I put the key on the ignition and turn on the engine. There was no reaction from the engine. The electricity was good. We checked the fuses, no busted fuse. One of my companion told me to disable my alarm then after it start. We traveled to our destination and I activated back the alarm. Then after, I had no more problem.

    What could have been the cause of that incident?
    muhkang hindi nag disable yung alarm ninyo sir. thats the reason hindi nag start...diba meron tayo start cut-off if on ang alarm..glad things are back to normal...

    Yup, meron po. Experienced this when I accidentally pressed on the arm button while the engine was still on. After about 5 seconds, the engine died and the steering wheel became heavy to turn ("pawis" steering na). The engine could not be started again until I pressed on the disarm button. Atleast with the experience, I'm confident that I can kill the engine if someone carnaps the ride while I'm out opening the garage gate since I carry the key and the remote separately.
