VAN IN FLOODED WATERS FOR 2 DAYS

2002 Pontiac Montana

Engine Mechanical problem
2002 Pontiac Montana 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 105000 miles

Flood waters got up to the bottom of marker lights in front. After the water went down I went out to see if it would start. Took off the air filter. There was a water line half way up the filter. It cranks over but no spark. Looked at oil and it looks clean. What do I have to do to get my car started? Possible problems. Looks like I had about 6 inches inside the van.

If the water was that high, you have a lot of work ahead of you. You are going to have to take every connector apart and blow all the water out and grease the connector. The module are most likely finished but dry everything out with a hair drier. Change the oil and fluids. It will take you a while but it could run by the time you are done.
