First off you have either suffered a catastrophic engine failure or driven it into the river, from the amount of water it takes to soak the air filter my first instinct is to say you are suffering from a intake leak you have left out a lot of information how about a detailed account of what happened it would be helpful in determining the cause. will this engine even spin over if not remove all the spark plugs and try again watch all the holes and see witch ones are pouring water out continue to crank the engine until no more water comes not add water to the a compression test this car should have 120min to 175max psi on a cold engine with the throttle fully open and battery fully charged this is the first place to start to find the problem if compression checks good then you should have a leakdown test done you can pump air into the cylinder that had the water in it if air can be heard escaping into the cooling system then you have a blown head gasket or cracked head maybe both good luck

My 2002 Ford Taurus passenger floor (front) is soaking wet. I have read that it could be a plugged hose. I am a female and have no experience...where do I find the hose to work on this? Can't affo

Sounds like the AC condenser drain is plugged. Do you notice a puddle under the right front while idling with the AC running? If not, the drain is plugged should be an easy and cheap fix at any local garage.

Need assistence for 2000 toyoto camry please

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.
