Engine Mechanical problem
1998 Volkswagen Golf 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 181000 miles
I accidentally drove through large puddles on Christmas Eve and my VW Golf stalled as I was turning into the grocery store. It scared me to death as the person behind me could have slammed into me. I had my car towed to the dealer who eventually identified that an ignition coil was cracked and didn't react well to getting wet. They are recommending I replace it ($400).
I have been reading on the Internet about the damage water causes and now I am very worried about what I've done - I can't sleep. Did I destroy a $15K car in 2 seconds?
The VW mechanics seem to believe that replacing the cracked coil should solve my problem, but I can't help worry that I caused permanent damage to my car that they can't see. Is that possible?
have the same problem?
