sounds likely that the sump has been punctured or a seal to the drive shafts or crank pulley damaged , only way to tell for sure is to get on a vehicle lift so can see under neath , will need to go to a mechanic shop for this

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.

1996 jag xjs , the battery is dead , I need to jump start it but the trunk won't open ,battery in the trunk , can it be jumped from under the hood ? and why won't the trunk open even with a key ?


The trunk latch is operated by a solenoid which it requires power to operate. since the batery is flat then it won't work. I'm not sure where the positive terminal is under the hood but you can connect the positive lead to the alternator wire terminal, and the negative lead can be connected any where on the engine.
Good luck......

Scan code po 301 #1 miss fire. Car sputtering. Happened a day after my 1998 chev prism went into the ditch were I was stuck in deep snow .


That code indicates a misfire on cylinder one. It may be related to your trip to the ditch or not. You could have gotten snow under the hood which melted and got water into the spark plug galley. This would cause a misfire. It could also just be time for a tune-up. Pull the spark plug wire off and check for moisture. You may also want to go ahead and replace the plugs and wires if they have more than 60,000 miles on them.
