My 2002 Grand Prix has recently been in a low flood. i was wondering if it still runs and drives is there possibly anything wrong with it? I need help because im not much on mechanical stuff! :( :o
ok, first off, introductions are nice, secondly, how deep was the water? have you talked to any mechanics in your area?
your the only one that can tell if it still runs and drives, so open the door, take a seat and turn the F***** key! Im not flying to where ever you live just to do it for you mate.
First off, DON'T turn the key!! Disconnect the battery, come back with some specifics. How high the water, would help.
The answer is yes. The last post still stands. What problems? Depends on how high the water got in your car.
Okay, I'm a bit confused. Are you talking to the voices in your head now? 8O
Me? You talking to me? No,,, I don't think I provided an answer to the question in my first reply :oops: :rolleyes:
A little more info might come in handy. Saying your car has been in a low flood is like saying it's real hot outside, somewhat descriptive but very ambiguous. And I'm not sure, are you saying it runs and drives or what?
First of all im thanking some of you that answered me and wasnt total
ASSHOLES! I just asked a fucking question, and if thats all most of you
people have to do is make fun of other people,then you all need to get a
Now for the specifics!
I know at least it got as high as the exhaust (and went in the exhaust system this is the whole reason im asking!) . and got some inside the car. It didnt do any electrical damage as far as i know,except for my heated seats.
And no i have not took it to any mechanics because i dont want to move the car just in casethe is something wrong.
( if u need any more info, reply again)
VHhobo, first time I read the question, and read stringers reply, I replied.(dumb on my part) Went back, read it three more times, placed comas where they should be and it made sense :rolleyes:
ignore the peanut gallery man (although an introduction is a good thing on
so, only about 6-8 inches? not over the bumpers?
tell ya what, find out where the computer that controls the car is located, if the water didn't get into that, and didn't get higher than the bumpers, i can't really see a reason why it shouldn't be fine (maybe a bit moldy and musty though)
might be a problem with the cats though, i'm not familiar with that system, so i won't comment on it
on second thought... might be a good idea to change the fluids, oil, transmission fluid, and check if there is water in the gas tank, then start it
Then why in the hell didn't you say so in your firstpost, Dickweed? You think it's fun to drag the information out of you? I just don't know about people from KY :rolleyes:
unfortunately he has a point
remember, the more info you can give, the more help we can give
BTW - you can defend yourself on this forum, so if you feel like it, go for it, your choice though
Come on back gpgt06, I think you understand now and those who can will help you ;)
As ASA said, if you can change the eng/tranny fluids, do it or get some help. You say your kinda clueless on mechanics, a mechanic or a shadetree with a good rep needs to inspect your car. Just to many things that can cause you a problem down the road. How long did the water surround your car?
i didn't do nuffin...
The water didnt stay around my car long, no more than 3or 4 hours (my aunts
car got flooded for 2 days :P , i guess thats what insurance is for!) The
car still starts and everything, just curious if there is somethin that
will cost me money in the future.
Anyway i have already arranged for it to be hauled to my uncles garage in TN, Hes goin to change all the fluids, drain the gas tank, Etc. But thanks for the "help" You guys supplied. next time i will add more info.
And when i get my car back i will update you all on how it went. ;) [/u][/i]
Well, then your in pretty good shape, to have an uncle that's a mechanic, almost like having a doctor in the family. We now have a doctor on this site, just eat-up with information, has a boy named Doug, just as smart :D :D :D :D
