Is it essential to opt for Hydrostatic Lock Cover when buying or renewing your car insurance?

Understanding Hydrostatic Lock

Driving back home on a bright sunny day or travelling across your dream destination is a blissful experience. However, Indian weather is quite unpredictable, incessant rains or snow fall may interrupt with the smooth functioning of your car. Especially during monsoons, driving across water puddles or parking car at a low lying area may cause severe risks to the engine. Due to excessive flooding, water might seep inside your car’s air valve and block the engine, resulting in Hydrostatic Lock.

Impacts of Hydrostatic Lock

Hydrostatic Lock causes vehicle breakdown and constant attempts by the driver to ignite the engine may cause significant damage to the cylinder wall, piston and the connecting rod. Nevertheless, engine repair or part replacement involves significant labour and material costs. This will leave you stranded with a huge dilemma and exorbitant repair costs, as hydrostatic lock cover is not covered under a normal motor insurance policy. Therefore, it’s always advisable to opt for an add-on engine and gearbox protection cover for total security.
