I'm sorry you are having problems with your vehicle. I will try to help.I'm a full time mechanic and have been a mechanic for over 20 yrs and I work part-time here on JustAnswer to help you and others repair their own vehicles, and I get credited by your ratings.. So before leaving the site make sure and leave me a rating. You can still reply to me as many times as neeed, even after the rating.. I will need for you to be my hands and eyes since I'm not there.Do you have any warning messages or check engine light? And does it turn over at all? Does it make any noise when trying to start? And did it die when going thru the water or it just wouldn't start later?Let me know and I'll continue to help.Thanks
