flooded the lude

I live in Wi and for some reason we got a few inches of rain, so ths morning i went through a puddle like 3 in deep and my car just claunked out, so i put it in nuetral and pushed it out. But it wont start, it wont crank over either. my dad told me to take the spark plugs out and try and start it and most of the water should come out. my car is lowered and i have a cold air. could i have sucked to much water in from my cold air?

why do people w/ lowered cars and CAI insist on driving through puddles.?...

AEM bypass valve FTW!



take your car to a mechanic before you further damage your motor. Nobody on here has been able to help out the last 3 guys that hydrolocked their motors. Just remember everything you do and everytime you attempt to start it, you're further damaging your motor.
