If you can start the car,drive the car for as long as it doesnt overheat.to dry out the engine bay.then pray it runs okay after.otherwise it could cost.....the cooling fan could just be shorted out but check your fusebox,if not blown,then let it dry.if you cannot start the car a dry garage might take longer......
what you have done,basically, is to immerse the engine electrics in water,not a good idea.......

Rain puddles on my lanai


it is almost impossible to get concrete so level that water will not sit in small puddles after it sets
depending on the depth of the puddles you could top the concrete with an epoxy resin finish all over
if the low spots are small in size , maybe finishing with large tiles will be an answer
there are professional concrete surface finishers that can advise on the problem

Water in rear passenger footwells


I have had water intermittently in the right rear trunk area (below the battery) every since an rear end accident. The dealer tells me that there is a vent back there that gets clogged up or opened up and lets water get in there. Not sure that I believe that, but that's the best explanation that they could give me.

I have a 2001 Grand Marque with 151437 miles on it and never had a problem with it. Recently I drove through a very large rain puddle and now my car sputters and accelerates slowly. Oh and the check engine...


It seems to me youre being taken for a ride, if the problem started when you drove over the water puddle then that means that some water go into a key component somehow, perhaps the fuel tank itself or an electrical component. I would stay away from that shop and try to replace the fuel in your vehicle, if its possible for you. also try to take it to autozone if you can, they wil plug the scanner to your vehicle and tell you why the engine light is on for FREE! Good Luck.

I own a 2004 LS. You didn't get water into the PCM,because of rain or anything else. The PCM is behind the glove box,only the connectors are in the engine compartment and their under the housing for the cabin filter. They won't even get wet from rain.

The battery could fail any time,after say three years,for any reason.

Don't know about warranty,ordered mine from factory in 03.

2004 Ford Explorer V8 died after going through puddle, no reset


Pull the snorkel off of the throttle body. If there water and/or oil in the tube and/or throttle body, you destroyed the engine. Water is not compressable, so if it get's into engine, parts like piston rods bend, engine seizes. Lets hope you got a module wet or something, because this isn't covered under warranty. If you're all clean and dry in the snorkel, wait for the summer heat to dry the car up and try again, if you get nothing you will have to take somewhere to be tested, too many variable to try to answer without testing.

I had this problem twice and it probably is the heater core. There is a temporary fix if you can't get it changed out right away. You can get it tied off but you won't have any heat, it will stop leaking though. Does your heater work? If your heater blows cold and only blows warm when your car warms up then starts blowing cool air again that's a surefire sign.

Choking in the morning and after rain, but it is gone after driving for 10 minutes


Pour a little water around the base of the coil while running and if engine stops running thats the problem.Coils tend to get small cracks that moisture gets into.Caused by engine heat and its own high operating temp.
