I have a 99 wrangler with the 4.0 that I rolled onto it's side into a marsh. We got it pulled out, I drained all the oil, much water came out, installed a new filter and refilled it with oil. I was able to start it and it runs fine every time I start it for about 5 seconds. After that, it shuts itself off. I have tried to pump the gas , it coughs and sputters for a few seconds, but it still sounds like it's starving for fuel. The fuel pump is working fine and it doesn't seem to have any water in the fuel. The battery was disconnected, could there be an issue with the security key needing to be reprogrammed? If not, does anybody have an idea what's wrong? Also, there was minimal moisture in the distributor cap, however, it does run perfect for approximately 5 seconds. Any advice would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

with an engine upside down and running, the oil pump runs dry
the bearings are running with out oil or lubrication
with the engine shut off
the oil will settle in the pistons and will leak past the rings int the combustion chambers, into the rocker covers and into the air inlets and manifold
the coolant will be contained as the system is pressurized and cannot get anywhere it is not supposed to get to
transmission /diff oil may have leaked out of the breather holes but otherwise will be contained
should you purchase the vehicle , it will be necessary to remove the sump and check the bearings for damage, replace the oil pump. Remove the plugs and turn the engine by hand over to push any oil out of the combustion chambers
with the vehicle sitting right way up any oil will run back to the sump except that which is in the air intake and manifold
Basically it should be in a recoverable state,if the engine was shut down quickly enough
check the crankcase around the engine mounts for cracks as the engine weighs a lot and the throwing around can stress where the mounts are
Front air bags are not designed to deploy in side impact, rear impact or rollover crashes.There are several reasons why your air bag may not have deployed during a crash. The first reason is that perhaps your crash is not the type of accident where air bag deployment would be helpful. For frontal air bags, this includes many, but not all, side impacts, rear impacts and rollovers. This category also includes minor accidents in which the driver and front passenger (if there was one) did not suffer any significant injuries requiring medical treatment. Many people do not realize there are a lot of side air bags that do not deploy during a rollover accident, even when the vehicle rolls onto its side. That is because those side air bags do not include an appropriate crash sensor that can detect rollover crashes.
Unless this happens in the rain as well, I would not worry about it. Likely in the car wash, far more water is coming in than the normal drain system can handle, therefore causing it to overflow. If you do have a drain obstruction, find the drain hose (small right angle hose on firewall passenger side) and roll it in your fingers to clear it.
if u got automatic front hubs stop put in park pull 4x4 shifter into 4 wheel
manual hubs at front wheels turn the hub locks to the lock position and then pull the 4 wheel shifter inti 4 wheel
also look over drivers sun visor if the tag aint worn off the direction are there... have fun 4 wheeling and keep the rubber side down
rank, rate & vote for my solution
get a 6 cylinder motor drop in this is best gas saver for most vehicles 4 cylinders dont have the ability to push all the weight of a vehicle but runs smoothly
6 cylinders are as i put in words are evenly balanced for everyday use and not gas guzzler either
