Is it running fine? No warning lights? What should you do? Go to happy hour and celebrate.

Yes it pulled out of the puddle fine no problems and it didnt die out. I havent tried to restart it yet due to having to be at work. There was no warning lights at all.

If it did not die out, you are safe- the small bit of steam you saw was just water coming off the hot exhaust- if it starts and runs fine, there was not enough water to do any damage- modern cars have big splash pans under the engine compartment to protest against big splashes- If you are still worried, go to your mechanic, tell him what happened, and have him check it- and if you are due for maintenance, get it done at the same time-
