Check air filter and MAS sensor. This may not be  water issue - just a consequential event,

Paid for a complete check up. Apparently only the spark plugs were wet.

I was driving my 09 mazda 3 the other nite after a bad rain storm drove through some bad puddles slow and the last one I went through the car shut off and I got it towed and now just turns over but won't...


Bummer deal! Not likely you hurt the motor - but may have water on those parts that make and send spark voltage to the spark plugs. When wet the voltage follows the moisture away from the spark plug - so the motor spins - but can't start for lack of spark. Make sense to you? Each of those parts need to be removed and blown dry - then it will run good as need again. Motor and fuel additives like those mentioned below also help with removing moisture in tank and motor oil areas and is a great engine protector - anyway. Hope this helps... http://www.auto-tune-up-and-repair-options.com/worn-motor-treatment.html

ABS light on in my 2005 Mazda Tribute. Just had an oil change and tire rotated. Also steam cleaned the engine yesterday. The brake fluid is low. I will try filling that.


You do not steam clean any engines from
1985 on, or you will have problems with water
intruding electical connectors & more

Brake fluid won't be low
As the pads wear & caliper piston moves out,
fluid level goes down,not an issue

The ABS light you should already know is a Vehicle
System Malfunction & we have had those or similar
lights on the dash of all vehilces for 30 years
So nothing new at all. Check for codes,diagnose &
have the ABS Braking System repaired

Mazda Tribute. Water leak under driver's feet. Had similar leak on passenger's side and it was the air-conditioning. Could this be the same?


Generally, water on the passenger side is the A/C drain tube.
Driver side generally means widshield or sun roof seal leak.
Did you wash the Mazda or did it rain prior to puddling?
Before disassembling the windshield seal, test ... with a water hose (Remove floormat and place a towel on newspapers on the driver's side floor).
There is a "smoke" test" that can more accurately find the leak. See if you local AutoZone will rent one (maybe free) to you.

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.

Dont have any spark


Open the distributer cap and dry that with a blow dryer, also blow-dry the alternator. The water that was in the cylinders would be gone after about 1 minute if idling so don't worry too much about drying the plugs again. You should also check and make sure the coil and all it's connectors are dry. That should fixya! Hope that helps!
