Hi. I recenly got caught up in a small flood, and my truck stalled out in approx 3 feet of water (it came up to about the bottom of the driver's door). Now, when I start my truck, it runs for a minute, starts to idle roughly, then dies. If I try to put the truck in gear when it's idling, ikt also stalls. The engine has cold air intake if that helps any. Please Help!
Thanks,
Chris

Water can damage alot of stuff.

I would be suspect of a faulty MAF sensor first and foremost.
