I know what ya mean. I've gotten her up to 100mph, but I backed off, cause that'* way to fast to hit a pothole or swerve or something. I'd rather keep it on the low end.

135 Km/h = 83.7 mph...

161 Km/h = 100 mph

Jamming the engine by getting liquid in the cylinders. Since liquid doesn't compress, the piston basically slams into a brick wall, and the weakest component can fail: You bend a rod, break a rod, blow a head gasket, whatever will relieve the pressure if the entire engine can't soak up the shock. General bad stuff happens.

A hydrolock can occur if some idiot tries to, say, drive his little car through a deep puddle, and the engine snorks up liquid water through the air intake. Less frequently, a blown gasket can allow coolant to seep into a stopped engine, and if it fills the cylinder full enough before someone comes along to try and start it again, *wham* instant hydrolock as soon as they try to start it next time.

Ok. But I can't relate how that could happen by driving fast.
