Question about 2001 Ford F150 Styleside SuperCrew

2 Answers

My daughter ran through a huge puddle with my truck she said she went slow but I know it wasn't slow enough because the hood liner was socked and their was puddles of water laying on top of the block ..since then it has been running rough sounds a lot louder like theres no muffler on it , it skips and putters when you push the gas I took it to a mechanic and he says the the computer says its one of the coil packs so he tells me to take it off blow the water out of it and put it back together well this doesn't help ,there was moister in it but I don't think that was it so i might try taking them all off and clean them out what do you think ? I also thought the converter went because of the water but not sure

The best you can hope for is to let it sit in a warm environment for a week or so (like a garage)... start it up to operating temperature, then shut it off.

This will evaporate any standing water. Then re-evaluate your situation.
It's not prudent to start changing wet parts.

Thanks!!!!

    if the cat got wet - the medium has absorbed the water - and will not work without changing it out.... ever. This may be the cause of the poor operation... if the exhaust has nowhere to go... and maybe blww out the gasket or donut (thats why its louder)



    Remove the exhaust from the cat to the muffler - and see how it runs!

    Even the muffler's fiberglass may be waterlogged.

    If you're lucky - no water got in the fresh air intake - and your damage is limited to the exhaust system. Once you take off the exhaust - you'll know it's saturated by the weight alone.



    Thanks!

Hi! Please check on the spark plug wires. The plug wires may be a little loose due to the bump. If they are loose it can make the car sputter. Please write back on the progress. Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa!

    Hi! Have you checked if the plug wires are secured?

  • jeffandsonya Aug 29, 2010

    it doesnt have plug wires ....it has coil packs that are screwed the the block with rubber boots that sit on top of the plugs if the screws are tight which they are then they cant be loose ...am i wrong on this cause i dont see any wires lol

    Thats gonna be hard to tell. Try to check the transmission fluid if its a little whitish. If it is, then water sure is inside.

My daughters 2007 Odyssey loses power in rain. It started when she went through a deep puddle coming from work at night. Now whenever there is rain it has little power.


Possible the trip throught the deep puddle soaked the alternatior when water got above the splash guard mounted on the under carrage suggest you check all of the electrical wiring amd relays to see if any are wet or are now exposed to the weather. Good luck. Fixes for deep puddle adventures can be difficult to find and fix.

Drove through puddle - Battery light came on, temperature gauge all the way up, cold air blowing out of vents


Sounds like it may have blown a hose and you lost all the coolant. IT could also be that the puddle you drove through caused the head gasket to blow. At any rate, this is not going to be cheap.

My Mazda 929 went through a water puddle and now it wont start


I agree with "emissionwiz". What probably happened was you hydrostatic-ally locked your engine. What happens is when you went through that puddle water got sucked into the intake and into the engine. Water being a liquid cannot be compressed and stalled the engine and most likely bent some internal components. If you can hear the starter click but the engine won't turn over you've got a 99% chance its a ruined engine. If you don't want to believe that try turning the engine over by hand (socket on crankshaft), you should be able to turn it, if not it's done for. Good luck and sorry about the misfortune but next time go very slow through puddles.

Brake fluid pouring out from behind front driver side wheel


If its the front wheel it could be broken brake line or caliper seal.
If its the rear wheel it is a wheel cyclinder or a brake line.
this car should be towed to a professional repair.

1995 lumina sedan won't stay running


Sounds like the results we had on a Jeep Cherokee after a friend showed us how well his heated pressure washer could clean up an engine comparment.

It took a couple of days before the Jeep ran normally again.

I think the splash caused some seepage into a connector, perhaps one connecting some sensor to the 'computer.'

Letting the car dry out if you can keep it running for 20 minutes or so until the engine is warmed up and then ignoring it for some hours might help.
