Question about 2008 BMW 528i Sedan
I drove my 540 i bmw through a flood and it turned off now it wont turn on what do you think is the problem
Just drain the oil and fluids even in the tranny cause waters gets in everywhere! period! remove the spark plugs! and dist wires crack engine a few times to pump all the water out of the cylinders then spray some oil in small amounts into each cyl.
put plugs and fresk oil back in and replace!! the ECM/ECU/computer's then next time you reach a flooded road? stop!! think!! and then back up !

What do I think the problem is. The driver is a moron.
How many computers do you think your car has? And you think they're water compatible? Tell your dad you saw advertising for a boat and then the bmw commercial came on and you got them confused.
Just for a quick test. put your laptop and desktop computer in the full bathtub, toss in your cell phone and see which one works after they dry out.
Then think to yourself how much time AND money you saved by trying to float the 540.
If you're lucky you liquid locked the motor and nothing else. this is where water from the flood seeps back in through the pistons from the exhaust and you try to crank start it and totally ruin the engine block by trying to compress liquid.
You car is a giant paper weight.
