If you got water inside your motor, it sounds like you may have hydro-locked, meaning water has filled one or more of your cylinders, not allowing the engine to turn over because the pistons can't compress water. Pull out all your spark plugs and turn the key as if you were going to start the car. If you see a bunch of water shoot out of the spark plug ports, then it was hydro-locked. Put the spark plugs back in and try to start the car. If the car starts, listen for clicking, ticking or banging from the engine. If you do hear a lot of noise turn it off immediately. Unfortunately, hydro-locking your engine can potentially cause a lot of damage to your engine. You could have bent a piston rod or a valve. If that's the case, you should take it into a shop to have it checked out.

Good Luck!

1995 BMW 525i back power window won't go up or down? Can hear motor when pushing button up or down.

Hi This sounds like it could be either of 3 things, first one, it may have come off the window runner that connects the glass to the motor drive, the motor cog inside the motor has broken in some way or the cable that drives through the motor has broken, i have attached a picture with components on so you can see how many things could go wrong, probably best thing to do is replace the whole thing maybe one from breaker yard. 25245083-vsrhmgky1iochn110wmavtyi-1-0.jpghope this helps...

Why does the rain cause my 2000 bravada not to atart?

Seems like an electrical issue. One thing that would bring down the engine is a crank sensor. Maybe "the car jerks" is a seperate issue. First thing I check is the spark plugs to see the spark.

Water leak at the rear of the motor

Sounds like a heater hose or maybe a welsch plug (freeze plug).

Fill it up with water and get someone to look where it is coming from.
Hopefully you can do an easy repair.

Over heating , no water in oil , no oil in water

fan clutch could be bad if it doesnt have electric fans. thermostat could be stuck shut. water pump may be bad s the impeller inside can come loose from the shaft the belt drives. dont drive until fixed as any new motor noise is sign of potential internal motor damage and may lead to engine failure.
