Customer Question

Hello. My 03 falcon is sad. I drove through some water on a rainy night in Brisbane recently. Put injector cleaner in and seemed to recover. Now it's running rough again. Do I need to send it to a professional? Can I bleed the fuel line and change the fuel filter? The air intake seems dryzabone so..
Cheers heaps

Hi there,
Yes, I would get a professional to look at your car.
Could be pure coincidence, could be anything from water ingress into a EFI connector to a ignition coil.
The main thing is the engine hasn't ingested a large volume of water, of which you have already checked.
If you bought fuel near to the time this happened, the fuel could also have a high water content and be the cause of your problem.
Hope this helps.
