F-150 cranks but wont start after dieing in rain/puddles
Last night I was driving home and it was pouring rain all day and all night,
puddles were everywhere and were huge some over a foot deep.
After having no choice but to plow through a huge puddle, my truck died
and sputtered to a stop as if I ran out of fuel. Said "check guages". After
waiting 5min I turned truck on and puttered home (3km) with it dieing twice
in between and me having to wait 5min then start it.
This morning truck turns over perfectly but won't catch. Tried a bunch of
times and still wont catch at all.
If I had to guess I would say it is an issue with fuel delivery? One thing to
note is I have a passenger side manifold leak for about a year now. My
mechanic said its not really a big deal and I didn't have to worry about fixing
it. Maybe water got in that crack?
At first I had a feeling it was not getting fuel because of the way it sputtered.
But on second thought how would the rain change that at all? MAybe the
force of the water moved something? Could it be as simple as bad/wet/old
Also nothings drying out anytime soon... cold and wet here. Everything will
drop below freezing tonight so maybe that could be helpful?
Thanks in advance!
Make sure there's spark in it what size motors in it?
Remove connectors from ur computer on firewall passanger side and blow them off, they got wet
