Sister-in-laws 2011 Accent has supposedly sucked water into the engine through the air intake. Engine ruined, oil milky, rust inside of head. Supposedly no leak from head gasket or block.
Engine ruined due to water in oil. Dealer insists only way water could get there was by sucking in through the air intake. Oil pan supposedly had chunks of ice in it when drained. insists that block not cracked nor head gasket leaking. Will replace engine with similiar mileage one for $2207 +tax, labor in. I have never heard of such a problem short of driving it into a lake.
Me either, but maybe snow might have blown into the engine bay and melted into the air intake.
