I have always wondered. What abt automatic transmissions? According to the article, u need to stay on 1st gear but wat if u step too hard and the transmission switches to 2nd gear. Will water enter during the gear change? Im aware of the common sport mode or "manual" mode in auto transmission, but even tat does not gurantee the transmission wun automatically change gear after exceeding a certain rpm. Correct me if im wrong

I think transmission is a closed system though, water cannot just enter, applies to both manual/auto

Main concern is water entering through the exhaust to the cat converter then finally the engine. Cat converter are expensive item to replace

Last time the car moi driving got a snorkel installed to route the air intake location higher than original.

So the water will not enter air intake
