[DML] Re: Is dry ice under car harmful

Dry ice under the car should not be harmful to anything, it's just solid carbon dioxide.  But don't let it get too close to your coolant system pipes/hoses, you don't want that to freeze up on you.

Also make sure when done you take a fan of some kind and circulate fresh air around and in the car.  The CO2 will settle in the lower portions of the car, including the air intakes/pontoons.

I imagine that some of the vapors will comes into contact with the car's underbody, brake and clutch line rubber hoses, stainless steel side panels, plastic of the bumpers and possibly even the upholstery of the open doors to name a few,
