Water probably got into some part of the electrical system and caused a short. Find someone with a computer code reader (if you can get the car to some store like AutoZone they have card readers available for free) and get the codes from the car's computer module. That will probably pinpoint the area you need to dry out and remove the short from.

Engine won t shut off


I would check your wires in the dashboard the wire that sends a signal to shut off the engine may be sparking or cut if you do not know which wire maybe hire a mechanic or look it up.

Thanks,

Rumbling noise coming from engine compartment.


engine size, etc., I can only make educated guesses, but here goes: You stated "My car will drive, but very slow hardly moving". My first suspicion is that you don't have a transmission problem, but the car is in what Chrysler calls the 'limp-home mode'. This occurs when the computer 'sees' a problem with an engine function or sensor that is serious, but not so bad that the car won't run at all. Limp-home mode allows your car to only operate in second gear so that you won't damage it further by driving normally, but won't leave you stranded either. Is your 'check engine' or 'service engine' light on? If not, check to see that it actually works by turning the key 'on', but not starting the car. All the dash lights should be lit for about 3-5 seconds. No matter what, you need to check your transmission fluid level (on a Crysler, should be checked with the engine running and in gear, NOT park or nuetral). Safety first, make sure someone is holding the brake on - please don't ever trust a 'parking brake' for this. If the fluid level is OK and there's no 'check engine' light you need
to visit a competent transmission shop. Probabably a worn front pump, torque converter, or a hung spool valve in the valve body, none of which is generally fixable at home. If you do have a 'check engine' light on, see a regular mechanic first as there is a mechanical problem probably not related to the transmission. Good Luck!

No fire i have changed cap and button ignition module and i am getting power to the coil


If the check engine light does NOT come on when cranking, at the times when it won't start, and the relays are clicking and buzzing, then your ECU is in need of repair. The engine will only start after the check engine light comes on and the ecu is what controls that. ECU is likely going bad, causing the delayed start problem typical of early 90's jeeps. Reasonably priced repair or replacement services for your jeep ECU are available on ebay.

My van bucked and then the engine light came on, and now it won't change gear


So whip out the scanner and diagnose the check engine light. That is the ONLY way you are going to find out what happened.

Check engine light won't come on on my 93 cherokee and it won't start when the light comes on after a dozen tries it starts


Your jeep is suffering from what is called the "delayed check engine light problem". Your main computer ecu is in need of repair. Some internal components, ones that normally send power to energize the various engine relays, have gone bad from age. Have the ecu repaired. That services is offered on ebay.

Cougar service engine light comes on for the first two miles


Hold down the "trip" and "trip reset" buttons at the same time when the service engine light comes on. The service engine light comes on between 5000 and 8000 miles as an oil change reminder, however you have to reset it manually.

(1995 Cadillac Eldorado) - Service Engine Soon light is on.


If this problem just started I would try to get a jump on it. It will be easier to track down if the light just started coming on. Otherwise other problems may come into play and the mechanic will need longer to sort them out. At around 70.00hr.Cheapest fix is to try and drop in a set of plugs. Good luck.
