I got water into my intake

Asked by Jun 29, 2016 at 12:07 PM about the 2000 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LS Ext Cab Short Bed 2WD

Question type: General

My truck is stalling now that I washed the motor
off. I think that when I was washing the air filter off
it sucked water into it. Now it's stalling. What
should I do?

The engine was running while you were washing it? If that was the case you most likely damaged some sensors and possibly other components. First thing too do is to get the codes pulled and hope there is a clue where to head, if no codes then you will need to have the system live data scanned to find out if it is a sensor problem or data corruption due to the moisture.

The only time I wash an engine is when it is warm and not hot or cold. Warm engine helps evaporate the water. I would never wash one while running.
