To run an ingine needs
1-spark
2-fuel and air at the correct ratio for ignition to occur
3-ignition timing
4-engine compression

Your problem could be in one or more areas listed.

I would check for fuel pressure at the fuel rail.
If that is ok then check for spark at the plugs.
If thats ok, could be a timing belt or internal engine problem.

These are generic suggestions, but my guess is a fuel problem.

It is most likely either a bad fuel pump or a bad coil/distributor. The best way to check for this is try to turn it over for about 10 seconds then go back to the tail pipe and smell around it. If you smell gas your problem is most likely in the coil/distributor. If there is no smell of gas then it is most likely the fuel pump.

Drove car thru water. Car died instantaly. water was knee deep. Pushed car out of water. will not turn over now.???


when you say it won`t turn over do you mean it tries to turn over with the starter or it won`t start.if you mean it won`t turn over then when it dries out a bit(water has drained from electrical components)try it again.if it still wont then its possible it may have sucked up water into the cylinder.pull the plugs and try to turn the motor over.if it does then this is the problem.if you mean it won`t start then let it dry still for water in a component may cause electrical issues when wet.just suggestions.
