DId the engine shut off when the car was in the water? Do not try to start it until you do the following inspection: Remove the air filter box and examine the air filter. Is it soaking wet? If so, you have ingested water into the cylinders. If this is the case, you must remove all of the spark plugs and crank the motor, this will blow the water out of the cylinders. Note that repeated attempts to crank the engine with water ingestion may cause damage ti the connecting rods. Examine the air filter for wetness & get back to me.

Ok here we go again 2000 buick lesabre . driving down road service engine light comes shortly after car stops dead. wait a few minutes usually starts back up light might go out get home fine. everyone is...


What you need to do is have the code checked for the service engine soon light.This will help in diagnosing what could be causing the vehicle to stop dead.By this I am assuming you mean it will stall.Auto Zone and some other parts stores will check the code for you for free.But the diagnosing will still need to be done to see what is causing the light to come on and make the car stall.Sometimes you may need a scan tool and a multi meter to help find the problem.Which means you may have to go to a repair shop.Hope this has helped you.Good luck.

R33 nissan skyline turbo over heated.the radiator exploded due to bottom radiator hose clamped shut causing no water flow i started it a couple of times after that.but now it wont start it almost does...


Hi this is really bad, first thing the overheating may have warped the head on the motor so i would get that checked by a pro before you do anything including starting it as it will do even more damage, second the water leaking near water pump will be from the gasket which would have blown out/split from the pressure which also maybe why water has ended up in your airbox, third the oil on the road can really only leak from the engine so the block maybe cracked too.
The best solution would be take to a pro and get an assessment but i wouldnt be suprised if the motor needs a lot of repair work im sorry to say hope this helps

Won't re-start after stopping for gas/rest during road trip.


This problem sounds like you have a fuel pump over heating and shuts of the relay. When it cools off the relay kicks in and you can restart your vehicle. Replace your fuel pump and the problem will go away.

Ok ma car ran hot cut off and wouldnt start back up i let it cool down then i tried again and it wouldnt start back up so i went to the radiator and took off thee capsal and the stuff in there look oaily...


You have oil mixing with water which means your water pump is gone bad.

Please call an expert from a garage to come fix it for you and dont try starting it again so as not to knock the engine.

Be careful.

2000 Eclipse wont start, fuel in plugs


I hate to be the one to tell you this but if there is fuel,oil,water getting into your plugs than you have bad rings. the vehicle will not start because it is not getting enough compression to do so. If you love the car and would like it to run again it will cost about $1000.00 to have the rings done if not more. But since there is water than fuel getting into your plugs than it is a defenent sign that your rings are bad.

Subaru legacy cuttin out when the roads wet


i think the problem lies in the speed senor mounted on the gearbox.
when it rains,water gets in the connection and shortens the sensor thus causing the problem with the speedo and when the car's stationary the sensor dries due to the heat and runs again.
please check the speed sensor/connections and keep them dry and without viberations.
hope this solves your problem.

Well, there are some hundreds reasons why the engine can stop. Common ones are:
Dirty fuel filters, problems with electronic distribution, spark plugs to be changed, broken fuel pump, battery contact not in place, blown head gasket, rarely also a problem with anti-theft alarm motor lock can cause same thing.
Generally, if the car motor stopped immediately, with no additional symptoms is likely a problem with distribution ( no spark).
If you have experience in servicing your car you should start from checking if there is spark, and if petrol is being pumped regularly.
Best thing to do is always having it checked by a mechanic.
