Then, see if the engine will spin. You may have to remove the fan to access the crank nut. If it does not turn by hand then there may be engine damage due to water will not compress. This is called hydro-locking your engine. If it does turn then "is the starter locked up" Be sure not to over look diagnosis of electrical related issues due to water.
Lastly if its a stick shift have some one pull you in gear, with fresh oil in the engine of course, and try to get the oil pumping again to achieve some compression.take all spark plugs out turn engine over a few times then try to start may have to change plugs fuel and oil at least check! I have a 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee that wouldn't start after it rained. The problem was simply water getting onto my battery terminals. I bought a new battery and covered the terminals in a waterproof grease. This may help with your situation. Also, check to see if your distributor cap is cracked, I'm not 100% sure about this idea but give it a shot. If you drive through a puddle sometimes water can get your distributor cap wet of even into the car
I drove through a puddle in a 89' Toyota Camiry and had the car die in motion from a distributor cap that FILLED with water. after ensuring that the engine still turns over, The easiest diagnosis for this is to check to see if you still have a "spark". If there is no spark, the first place to try is the distributor cap, then work your way from there. I was lucky. some mopping up and water dispersant (WD-40) and it runs like a top again.Ethamax is the best choice if you want to remove water out of a fuel tank without paying a mechanic to remove the tank and do the job for you $$$......!
This is not a complete answer.
If your car stalls in water more than 300mm, 12inches deep, it is possible that water will enter your differential. This is because the cold water cools the diff housing and the air inside, and thus will draw water in the breather pipe. You do not want water in your diff. In this case, you should not have your car rope towed, as this may damage the diff. Have it towed on a trailer, and have the diff drained and re-filled with proper oil. How deep the water is makes a difference.
If there is any chance of water in the cylinders. You need to remove the spark plugs. Turning it over with plugs out should blow out most of the water in the cylinders. I have seen engines that have sucked water through the air filter and into the cylinders. When starting was attempted several rods got bent. Some cars take air in close to the head lights. Some even below the head lights
Don't drive in deep water. It means you got the electronics wet. Once they dry out it will start.
Wait a second, then start it again.
The same way you started it
how does it stall if it wont start?
pancakes you little idiot
When your car stalls when its raining, it may be getting water in the distributor cap. Make sure the cap is on properly.
I would start off by checking any vaccum hoses for leaks.
fuel system... likely injector
Sometimes a car stalls when driving though water because water got sucked up into the engine. This can cause a lot of damage, so don't attempt to restart the car after it stalls. Have the car towed so the engine can be stripped down and drained of the water.
car stalls backfires hard to start
IF IT IS A MANUAL TRANSMISSION CAR, THEN IT SOUNDS AS IF YOUR CLUTCH IS BAD/WORN OUT.
My car did the same thing, is your lights affected? If so it's your alternator.the lights are not affected. i mean they cut out when the car stalls out but isn't that typical?
There is most likely something in the gas tank. When the car starts the fuel pump starts sucking in fuel and when the trash gets to it the gas will not be able to flow through the clogged pump so the car stalls. When it stalls the fuel pump stops suction and the trash comes out allowing it to start again.
broken cylender head gasket. most likely water in oil as well. Is your oil milky?
It cold be either a plugged fuel filter or an electronic ignition component that is failing from heat stress.
Answerput the car into fifth gear and push it backwards to clear all of the water out of the cyclinders. (when pushing the car it will be VERY heavy because you need to turn the engine over too. Make sure its not switched on!!!!!!!
The engine stops.
There can be many reasons a car stalls from poor fuel feed to lack of spark. By far, the main reason is poor driving technique.
tps throttle position sensor
Start it up again.
Check for vacuum leaks.
Start the car and while it is running, disconnect the positive cable from the battery. If the car stalls, the alternator is bad.
over heated will cause it to start after 30 minutes
If a car engine stalls when turning, there could be a problem with the power steering pump. There could also be an issue with an emissions control device.
