Engine problems - possible water damage!
I have a 94 Honda Accord. It was parked at the curb and a storm came and flooded the street. Water did get into the car on the floorboards, I'm just not sure what damage has been done to the engine! I know that water must have affected the engine just not sure to what extent. The car starts but has a slight sputter and this is when the car is on an incline, engine at the highest point. When I drive it on the street, it starts to sputter really bad and jerks, engine light then comes on. When I give it gas it seems like it wants to go, but is sluggish and continues to sputter. I haven't driven it much because of this and afraid it will stall somewhere or even ruin the engine. The muffler was completely submerged. Don't know if that has anything to do with it, but I thought it might. Is there something that I can do without taking it to a garage? And if so, what?
