Engine got wet. Why doesn't it start?


Depends on how wet it got. There is high voltage present at the coils for the spark plugs, water shorts those out. If water got into the cylinders then the sparkplugs wont spark either.

After engine shampoo, engine won't start on 2001 honda crv


You got ignition system wet, remove the distributor cap and check for water, i bet you will find it wet. you will need to dry it out even by using a hair dryer to dry it out, then try to start it. i would let it run for a while with hood open to allow moisture to flow out from under the hood to avoid other components from getting wet. let me know the out come good day.

My 1991 jetta won't start,,,fuel pump good,,,getting spark,,,,plugs are wet when I check them after trying to start,,,,injectors ohm good,,,any ideas?


If the plugs are wet, it may be flooded. Try leaving the plugs out until they dry, then, reinstall and try again.

Pontiac montana over heated dexcool whent everywhere will not start just clicks


If the car was running when this happened and now it won't start, I would have to take a look at the starter to see if it got wet and make sure it is not shorted out. Also the wiring from the battery to the starter may be wet and shorting as well as something in the fuse box. IF it is clicking then I suspect you have some power to the starter but not enough to turn it over. If you ran the car for a while after it was wet you could have damaged the altenator and it may not be charging the battery and the battery may be drawn down to where you don't have enough amps to start the car. Try jump starting to see if it is related to the battery if not then start looking for electrical shorts in the wiring to the starter.

Drove car thru water. Car died instantaly. water was knee deep. Pushed car out of water. will not turn over now.???


when you say it won`t turn over do you mean it tries to turn over with the starter or it won`t start.if you mean it won`t turn over then when it dries out a bit(water has drained from electrical components)try it again.if it still wont then its possible it may have sucked up water into the cylinder.pull the plugs and try to turn the motor over.if it does then this is the problem.if you mean it won`t start then let it dry still for water in a component may cause electrical issues when wet.just suggestions.
