Question about 2005 Mazda MPV
Was driving in rain at night and accidentally went thru deep puddle. The van immediately started shaking. Went home and shut off engine. Figured I'd let it dry overnight. Started in morning and shook for a few seconds and then stopped. Turned on AC and van started shaking like when I first emerged from puddle. I parked the van and opened the hood and started the engine. The hose in front of the radiator and possibly the fan are vibrating. I was wondering if anyone knows if there is permanent damage, what possibly could have happened by going through the puddle and what I should do in the meantime. Thanks in advance.

Hello there, As far as the check engine light I would think since you mentioned it shacking that your light will probably be on for a misfire, Meaning most likely you have a spark plug wire going bad. I would stop by somewhere such as Autozone for a free check to tell you why your light is on just to double check.
Your fan issue could be several different things such as the fan motor going bad or the blades could be rubbing something, that one is a little tricky without hearing it.
Good Luck and I hope this does help you some. Allen

Sounds like you flooded it not with water but with fuel due to moving car with out warming it up all the way before shutting it off. You can take it to the dealer and get a flash update to prevent this in the future. To deflood remove spark plugs and let sit with fan on them over night to dry out. Replace and start cranking for 15 seconds at a time till she starts up. GL!
