Question about 1995 Buick Regal
Just to start it
Intake for engine air filter for most vehicles are localocated in fender wells. You probably just put water into your engine where its not supposed to go. In my experience your paper air filter got wet and now will not let enough air to pass through it. If you have sucked water into your intake then you might want to take it to a mechanic. Off the record, pull the filter when your not in a puddle. Try cranking a little and if its not struggling you might have gotten lucky. Dry what you can and try to start it. Make take a few extra turns of the key but if it starts you should replace airfilter and get an oil change to remove excess water. If not lucky your engine will not crank because engine full of water and water does not compress in an engine. I have helped people on side of road/street river and helped them start car and drive away. If your stuck and have some tools you can pull plugs crank engine without the plugs in and water shoots out of plugs. Dry plugs and reinstall. Try to crank without wet filter and you might get lucky. All of this is a suggestion that I have personally recommend if you can't get proper help and are in a pinch. macgyver mechanics are not recommended but can save your behind when your in a grind.
