Water in intake air manifold

Asked by Loganlynch101 Apr 13, 2020 at 07:35 PM about the 1995 Toyota 4Runner

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Why is there water in my air intake

1 Answer


The air intake is the tube to the air filter and then to the engine. I suspect that's what you meant. Water can get into the air intake from particularly rainy weather, but that's not usually enough to cause problems as sensors will detect it. If the truck went though standing water, that could pour water into the intake and choak off air to the engine. From that you could get water into the manifold, and that can be a problem if it gets into the cylinders and the engine attempts to run with fluid in it.
