The whole question from above is: I have a 1998 v70 that just stop working a few weeks ago. I have tested compression of all 5 cylinders and they are all in the 170-180 psi range. I have spark to the plugs and have fuel to the engine as well. It started after taking the vehicle across a flooded parking lot in the rain. Do you think water got inside the engine? It turns over fine, just won't start. Starter fluid does nothing. Every now and again it will start for 5-10 seconds and die. Please help!!
