      Significance of Engine Protection Cover

      An engine protection add-on will cover all the costs and offers a protective shield against the damages that occurred due to engine malfunction, lubricating oil leakage, ingression of water, hydrostatic lock, etc. With the Indian roads getting waterlogged at even the slightest spell of rain, the scenario of a car’s engine getting damaged is quite common these days. If you are in a rain-prone location in India, go for a car insurance that covers engine expenses or has add-on coverage for engine damage expenses.

      What does an Engine Protection Add-On Policy Include?

      Engine protection add-on provides coverage for the following:

      • Expenses against damages due to the leakage of the lubricating oil
      • Expenses against damages caused due to ingression of water
      • Expenses against damages due to gearbox malfunction
      • Hydrostatic lock expenses – the lock when you try and retry to start a wet engine after a flood or water ingression. Cranking an engine that was submerged under the water may trigger ignition and might damage the engine. This will be treated as deliberately done damage to the engine and your claim request could be rejected.

      What is not Included in the Engine Protection Add-On Coverage?

      Despite the fact that you have a valid engine protection add-on cover, there are high chances that your car insurance claim will be rejected if you do either of the following before calling the insurance people and informing them about the damage to the engine:

      • Try to force start your car when it is submerged under the water has a wet engine. The engine, in general, is designed to completely shut down and not let the water in, and trying to start the engine forcibly will let the water in and cause great damages leading to claim reject
      • If you try to drive a car with a damaged bonnet, the lubricating oil might enter the engine. This scenario would come under deliberate damages/consequential damages. Since the damage is a consequence happening and not due to the accident, your insurance claim might not be validated.
      • Add-ons come with limited validity. Only one claim per add-on is possible within the insurance policy period and for another claim to be made, one more add-on has to be purchased.
      • This add-on is applicable for cars that are not more than 5 years old.

      Who should Buy the Engine Protection Add-On Cover?

      • People living in a flood-prone area or working near a water body
      • People who own high-end cars for which the cost of damaged engine repairing would be way more than that of a normal car
      • People who want to avoid all kinds of financial risks

      How To Purchase Engine Protection Add-on?

      You can purchase the add-on either while purchasing a comprehensive car insurance policy or while renewing it. Follow the steps given below to purchase an engine protection add-on while renewing the policy.
