Dude...it's only rain! Not like you gotta drive your Celi in the snow and get gravel spitting at ur hood and windshield man, we got it worse
Are you KIDDING me...JUST RAIN...man I invite you to endure a Houston rain storm...with shitty drainage in Houston. I am sure FPCElica remembers about October 2003 we had a huge storm that flooded most streets and freeways...I was driving with my girl through downtown going home from school (where UH was a water park), through water that was ankle high and up to my lower chins deep. I45 was locked down, and I knew our only chance to get home was to take the HOV lane meaning we had to drive in high water through downtown...SUCKED I was on the feeder road and watched an older celica stall, knowing i had to drive through it...I floored it, and the over pass was turned into a waterfall...200 feet through high water with water pounding my car from the overpass above, couldnt see crap...then i had to run through a gauntlant of low intersections because construction made them deeper than the rest of the roads. watching cars stop a then stall because they dont understand once water enters the tail pipe/ecu/battery you are finished...I saw steam coming from the Hood
scoop on several ocassions..and still made it home no probs...just rain...well just rain turns to hail real quick here also...blistering temperatures creates up drafts water is push back into the high atmosphere freezes then falls back frozen.
but hey its just rain...so is snow before it frezes into snow
Houston also get dusty during the summer, sand blasting the front of the Celica
But ya definetly get the oil changed and check the transfluid, battery and exauhst...my under plastic popped loose from the force of the water during those storms...and I had a Jack in the box cup stuck in my rear spring
take your bulb out of the lamp housing and let them air out...i had some condensation after my ordeal but it left after air them out
