I drove thru floods in my 2003 vectra, will the computers be busted; how much $. Cheers


Your car would have to be completely submerged for water to get to the computers. Start with the alternator. Make sure it's clean inside and all the diodes are working. Check the engine oil for water. Will make the oil grey. Change it and the filter anyway. Check the rear differential for water. It will enter through the vent if the water was deep enough. Open the distributor and let it dry out

DROP THE TANK & REMOVE ALL OF THE WATERED DOWN GAS FROM THE TANK.USE DRY GAS IN THE TANK AS WELL & A LOT OF FRESH GAS IN THE FUEL TANK & CLEAN UP THE FUEL SYSTEM ON THE TRUCK ALONG WITH REPLACING THE FUEL FILTER BECAUSE IT'S GOING TO BE FULL OF WATER FROM BEING FLOODED OUT.ALSO DRAIN THE OIL & REPLACE BOTH OIL FILTER & OIL TOO WHILE YOU'RE @ IT.CHECK OVER ALL OF YOUR ELECTRICAL WIRING & OTHER ITEMS THAT ARE ELECTRICAL AS WELL LIKE THE STARTER / ALTERNATOR / PLUG WIRES / SPARK PLUGS / YOUR TRUCK BATTERY AS WELL WILL NEED TO BE CHECKED & REPLACED IF HAS SHORTED OUT.EVEN YOUR EXHAUST SYSTEM WILL NEED TO BE CHECKED & REPLACED IF THERE IS WATER INSIDE IT AS WELL BECAUSE THAT TOO WOULD CAUSE IT STALL OUT IF THERE IS NO AIR FLOW FROM THE ENGINE TO THE TAIL PIPE.ALSO REPLACE THE AIR FILTER AS WELL IN CASE IT IS EITHER CLOGGED OF WATER LOGGED FROM BEING IN DEEP WATER.
REMEMBER IF ALL ELSE FAILS TO CORRECT IT YOU NEED TO GET IT TO A REPAIR SHOP FOR A COMPLETE CHECK OUT & ALSO TO GET IT FIXED RIGHT.

Car was submerge in flood waters up to the floor water was inside car. now the car engine won't start.


I don't know for sure if this is it, but I had a guy that had a flooded Saturn that wouldn't start. Tried a new starter, no good. Took out the plugs and the cylinders were full of water, turned over the motor and water shot out the cylinders like a fountain!!!! Something may have shorted out and you may have a blown fuse or a main fuse.

Computer box problem . The car was submerged in flood, so does the computer box. One Resistor R15 was damaged. Computer box is labeled as 37820-P1E-900 on the first line. Second line is 395-352210...


I would replace the computer box- these can be very pricy! In fact I would recomend replacing the car, you will have nothing but trouble from now on. When a vehicle is submerged, water goes into all kinds of places, and really messes up the whole electrical system. The wires will start to corode from the inside out. The reason for this, is the fact that the insulation on the wire is much like a straw with wire in it. Once the wires get wet in a situation like this, they get wet on the inside also, holding that water, and eating the wire. Every flood car that I have seen, will die a slow and painfull (wallet)death.

What to do with my 2003 Grand Vitara submerged in flood waters


Let the system dry for quite a few days before trying to start, otherwise the computer could get ruined. Most water damages the coil packs and crank shaft position sensor. Hopefully water did not go inside your intake manifold and engine. It may not start. The best thing to do is let it thouroughly dry. Have a diagnostic test done to see if any sensors or circuits got ruined.

95 gmc cranks but wont start


more than likely the fuel pressure regulator. have you had a fuel pressure check done to see if it getting the right amount of fuel to the system. also check the injector in the throttle body could be clogged and not working.

''My flooded car starts but wont stay running after replacing engi


Has the gas tank been drained and let to dry out and then refilled with gas and a water dryer and the fuel filter replaced? If not then you are in for trouble still and this is why is will not run. You are getting fuel and spark. Which means that your fuel pump is working and the starter is fine. Ingnition could be your problem but I would do the gas thing first then move on

Flood damage


If Engine Was SUBMERGED you must Change oil Remove All Spark Plugs Before you try to Start it AS WATER IN Cylinders While trying to Start Could Cause HYDRO-LOCK and Bend Piston Rod / Push-rod / Valve stem . You Must Make SURE Nothing ELECTRICAL is WET USE Compressed AIR to Dry Everything, Make ABSOLUTELY SURE All IS Dry and FREE of Excess Water. EVEN though you DID try & Start it Still Fallow these Instructions they WONT Hurt it for SURE. Hopefully It Did NOT Get Water Inside ANYTHING CRITICAL and It Lives Happily ever After. I ALSO Hope this Helps you with your Problem. And Please Dont Forget to RATE Me, Thank you!

Water in the gas tank


i would go up and get some HEAT they sell it at any auto store it treats up to 15 gallons of gas. HEAT takes the water and trapes it so that there isn't much water left into the tank and allowes the gas to run like it is supposed to..

I need to take out my gas tank and empty out the excess water


you can unhook the fuel line and turn the key on. nearly everything will pump out the hose. there will be some left in the tank.
A fuel tank is held on with two bolts holding the ******** the tank. a ratchet wrench can take this loose. And the neck filler is held on with a hose clamp (screwdriver). Watch the fuel lines and the wiring when you unhook it.
