Lost parts of car going through a puddle on the freeway!
I was doing about 60 Wednesday night in the pouring rain and hit a low spot on the freeway that had about 3" of water in it. I didn't see it soon enough to avoid it so I just hung on to the steering wheel and prayed. The car slowed down quite a bit but kept going straight spraying water everywhere. The noise from the water hitting the ubnderside of the car was deafening.
The next day the check engine light, VSC light and 4x4 light, came on. I stopped by the dealer on my way home to have it checked.
I was in the waiting room a few minutes when the service mgr. came and got me saying he wanted to show me something. We went out side and he pointed to the vehicle. There were two hoses hanging from the car below the drivers seat. It seems there was a plastic canister behind the charcoal filter that recircs tank fumes back to the engine. It must have gotten ripped off when I hit that puddle. I explained to him what had happened and he told me that warranty wouldn't cover the damage (~$150.00). I told him that I had never lost car parts by driving through a puddle in my 47 years of driving. He was unsympathetic to say the least. The worst part about this is the parts are on backorder from Toyota and they don't know when they'll have them. Until then, the lights are on on the dash.
