I have a 87 SE 2.8L. I got caught in the rain on my way home Tuesday night, there was a part of the road that was flooded that I did not see, untill I hit the water and was in it :/ Anyway I was doing about 50-55 and ended up making it through barely, the speed was able to get me through it. Right after making it over, the car felt like it wanted to turn off, but it didn't. Besides that, the car kept running good and made it home no problem.
So the next day, I go to check it out. It doesn't want to start! So after a while I confirm that it is not getting any fuel. At first nothing, no fuel squirts out of the shrader valve on top. Then I keep turning the ignition on and off to see if I can hear the fuel pump, I think I can hear it, never really paid attention to it before, so not even sure what it sounds like. Anyway, after doing that for a while, there is very little fuel squirting out now.
So what now, could it be the fuel pump? Maybe when I hit the water it made the fuel pump move around or mess it up or something. I am at work right now, so can't really search, but if someone can post how to hot wire it to see if it works, see I can get more fuel squirt out of the shrader valve. Or how what would you guys recomend that I do next?
