Seeing the impact of volcanic ash on your favorite vehicle, of course there are other impacts besides making the vehicle dirty.

Launching from, Monday (16/8/2021), Nugroho, the Head of the Pabelan Suzuki Car Workshop explained that in the air filter section of the car there will be a buildup of excess dirt.

If it turns out that the installed air filter is not suitable for use, then volcanic ash can enter the combustion chamber and damage the components inside.

“That’s right, for example, if the air filter has a hole or the cavity is too large, ash can enter the combustion chamber and result in more fatalities. However, if the air filter is still good, the possibility of ash entering the combustion chamber will still exist, but it is very unlikely,” Nugroho explained.

He also mentioned that the accumulation of volcanic ash in the braking system will make the brakes make a sound when activated.

Not only that, the cooling system in the car will also be disrupted. On a separate occasion, Technical Support Manager of PT Toyota Astra Motor (TAM) Didi Ahadi also said the same thing.

Volcanic ash that enters the combustion chamber of the engine has a great risk of injuring the cylinders such as the emergence of scratches. This is due to the rough and sharp form of volcanic ash.
