    Oil/water in engine?

    Ok, I went through a flooded area the other day and flooded my car . SO yesterday I took out all plugs and wires and turned it over. Now, im able to run it and it idles but it idles VERY rough and when we take off the lid/bellow we see water/oil inside the TB and behind. And we cant figure out where it is coming from. Any chance anyone knows/could help me? Thanks.

    Maybe residual water in the intake manifold? You may have to take the intake manifold off and dry it with a rag or compressed air.

    take the intake, tb, and all the intake tubing a filter off and dry that stuff out. Did you put a new filter in after the bath? This is why I hate buying used cars.
