Vehicle was submerged in about 2ft of
water. Fluid was drained and replaced. Will
not go into any gear. Motor runs great but
trans will not engage.
The clutches in the trans exposed to water for a period of time will swell up causing issues with shifting. You might be looking at a rebuild or replacement transmission. Have a local trans shop diagnose it for you.
A flood damaged car is a write off- your insurance should buy you a new one- when water gets into the electronics of these 21st Century cars, all the wires, sensors, computers- rust, corrosion- they are beyond repair and should be scrapped- unfortunately, some unscrupulous people clean them up and resell them to unsuspecting victims- they will never run right again- buyer beware
