This has to be a joke. Has to be. I mean, you're pulling into your house...that you do every damn day, how the **** can you not gauge a big ******* pond of storm water? This is God's punishment for having Ricelands on your car.

At this point, I'm going to vote CUBAN.

That was my previous car. I wish I couldve taken a picture but I had a puddle of water right by the exhaust manifold.

No joke. You guys obviously have never been to Miami. You **** on the street and it floods. Idk how it got so flooded so quick this time. Is so bad that I DO NOT drive in the rain for that matter. I started heading back home once I saw the storm coming, and before I got caught in the street flood. I had never seen the parking lot flood so bad so quick.

Literally I thought I was safe once I pulled in to the complex. Then I made the first turn into a ******* pool. My windshield was already fogged up and I was the only one out, I didnt notice anything new till the car took a nose dive. When I stepped out of the car to push it, the water was up to my knees and coming through the door opening. This was like that for about ~80 meters, up till my house's entrance.

Oh yeah, Chicago in Algonquian Indian dialect means onion or garlic,
in Potawatomi it means skunk. Now that's funny.

Noob from Skunky Onion checking in!

What are you so worried about? How do you think boat motors work? What you need to do is first drain your coolant. Your oil probbably floated up out of your engine and into the cooling tank. You also don't need the coolant because there is no way it will overheat with the water. Then drain the oil, resurface the drain plug, and fill the motor with 5Q of distilled water- distilled not spring etc or it will cause rust. Then pull the plugs, let them dry and coat them with petroleum jelly. This will keep them from rusting too and will actually help with detonation. The flame front burns differently in the water, closer up to the valves so the plugs can get really hot and cause pregination. Last steps.. gret under the car and disconnect the exhaust, remove the transmission, and bleed the brakes. A lot of water will come out when you pull the exhaust and transmission but that is ok. When you pull the transmission make sure to defeat the clutch interlock because that puts strain on the motor and causes extra heat. I recommend getting a can of "thrust" which is the proper type of starting fluid (do not get the generic or it will break!), removing your throttle body, and emptying the whole can into the plenum. That will evaporate the residues when you start it up. While you have the TB off, may as well clean it too because lichen can foul the coling passages.

Get in, and crank away. If it doesn't work, dry off your starter or replace it. They rust fastest because of the coils.
