Ive a Falcon Fairmont Ghia 04 after driving through a big puddle today the car stalled &went into limp mode something has got really wet can you help me please

All the electrical plugs should be weather pack plugs. this type of water and the low pressure of it, shouldn't get into them. If it was a lot of water, check the air filter. If it is misfiring, check spark plugs wires and or coil boots. which ever you have.

Went through a puddle and check engine light came on with code po303

this indicates a misfire on cylinder 3. it could have be plug, wire, coil. the water may have caused a short when these items got wet.

When I hit a water puddle why does my truck starts to misfire its a 2001 3.9 v6 dodge dakota?

The first thing that comes to mind is you've got some spark plug wires that are in poor shape. Water getting on older plug wires can easily short them to ground. You can test this theory by starting the truck, letting it warm up, then spraying the plug wires and other ignition parts with a spray bottle filled with water. If it starts misfiring, then you know you've found the problem.

I have a 2001 dodge ram 1500 4wd and three codes came up P 300 p 301 and p 308 what are these ??? help please!!

The codes mean as follows
PO300 multiple cylinder misfires
PO301 #1 cylinder misfire
PO308 #8 cylinder misfire
Some of the more common causes for these codes popping at once are, if you went through a big
puddle and the engine and wires are wet or the distributor cap and/or wires are bad or the camshaft
sensor(located inside dist cap) is bad and sending false signals. Hope this helps.

I went threw a large puddle.It stalled my car.Now i am getting a 0302 code and another.I forgot what that code number was.It states misfire cylinder 2 @ 1000rpms.I am planning to try plugs and wires...

You need to do a compression check as the engine probably has sucked up the water into the engine this usually hydraulics the engine bending connecting rods causing a misfire. Or if u r lucky it might just have fouled the plugs.

I drive though a puddle of water and the battery light come on and I losre power steering. I put a serpintine belt on about two years ago

mcdevito75 here, Chances are your driveing too fast thru puddles, water is getting on the belt causeing it to slip and water also hittind electricall system, cils / Alternator etc. go slower thru puddles, better yet avoid them as you could get stuck.

the flashing represents misfire codes i would try a set of autolite plugs and go from there of course you will have to go somewhere to get the light turned off possibly auto zone

Engine misfiring/fuel coming out exhaust

Sounds like you may need to inspect and replace your fuel line from front to rear. no other reason for your problem.
