2012 Sienna Hydrolocked Engine
Has anyone ever had their 2011+ Sienna engine hydrolock after driving through heavy rain? It happened to my wife recently with our 1-week old 2012 Sienna with just 400 mile on the odo. Googled the topic and found a discussion on another site. It happened to two others within this year. One in San Fransisco in Feb/2012 and another in Miami in May/2012. Hydrolock is when the engne sucks in water and dies. Stuff bends inside and ruins the engine. It's not covered under the new car warranty. The 2012 Sienna air intake is up front and, in my opinion, seems prone to suck in every drop of rain splash that gets near it.
