Customer Question
Car stalled in about...

Car stalled in about 1 foot of water. Towed it home and now it won't even turn over. It's about 3 hrs since we towed it home. Water was about maybe 2 inches above bottom of door. 2013 Nissan Sentra. Any advice?

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Sentra yourself? What have you tried so far?

Nothing yet but trying to start it. Won't turn over at all. Lights are working. Only drove about 30 ft before it stalled in water. Was towed in less than an hour.

Mechanic's Assistant: Just to clarify, what are the exact lights you're talking about?

Tail lights whe you unlock and lock it

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Water was about a foot deep

You do not need to do the live phone call. That is just something the site offers. I did not send the offer to you, the site does it automatically.

Did the engine ever turn over when it was in the water after the engine died?

Didn't try to start car after it stalled
Nissan Mechanic: KALAMYKID, Shop Owner/ Tech replied 6 months ago

The first thing you should do would be to pull all the spark plugs out and see if there is any water in the spark plug tubes, or in the cylinders.
