i just unfortunately drove through a big thinderstorm and one of the roads I was traveling on was a bit flooded (i didn't know at the time until i found myself in a huge puddle of water). next thing i knew it was hard for the engine to move the car, and I gunned the engine to get it out of the water. Well long story short, my car started to emit a rather noxious smell from around the front end. I checked under the hood and the smell seems to be coming from the radiator fan area of the car. I have a '93 celica ST. anyways, I was wondering if anyone had any ideas of what this could be?
Could you introduce yourself, please, feels wierd me saying please and all :banghead:
didn't mean to offend anyone. just looked online for a forum on cars. ya my name is Jeff. Hi guys!
Okay thank you, atleast ya didn't get me super pissed :wink2:
Burnt out radiator motor could be causing the smell. Have you ever smelled
burning circuits before? Creates a noxious smell, the familiar smell of PCB
Does the car start? Where is the air intake, was the air intake for the engine below water? If so, the engine is flooded and that's not good.
if water got into the cai, ur engine couldve gone into hydrolock right? i think thats right not sure tho someone let me know.
if it has one, does the electric fan work? probably smoked it
Yeah, that's exactly like I was getting at. A noxious smell could likely be burning electronics, aka, an electric motor or something of similar nature. Anyways, that is really sore luck to have your car flooded like that. Perhaps you should be much more careful where you're driving when it's raining.
