Driving through water

Driving through water  - Driving - Lincoln MKX Owners Manual - Lincoln MKX

When driving through water, traction or brake capability may be limited.

When driving through water, traction or brake capability may be limited.

Also, water may enter your engine’s air intake and severely damage your engine or your vehicle may stall. Driving through deep water where the transmission vent tube is submerged may allow water into the transmission and cause internal transmission damage.

Once through the water, always dry the brakes by moving your vehicle slowly while applying light pressure on the brake pedal.

Wet brakes do not stop the vehicle as quickly as dry brakes.
