Yeah I traded cars with my daughter and she said she got all the maintenance work on it and I think she said there's a hose problem but she but she said the other day when she was driving it just shut off and slowly by itself and then once you pull it over it starts up again after you wait about 10 minutes what is that?

Hello! I'm excited about this site. My Honda Accord EX 2003 (v6) got caught in a freshwater flood about 6 months ago. My car has been idle since. The water line was above the seats, & the car was on a decline, so the whole front end was underwater. I did crank the engine while under. The oil dipstick looks good, though. The battery was working for a day or two, then died. I bought a new battery, which works, but the car won't start. I bought new spark plugs, replicas of the ones that were in the vehicle. I'm assuming the ECM is damaged, so I'm planning on buying and reprogramming a new ECM to my car's VIN. I'm guessing there's probably a lot of electrical damage. Do you think the wires are okay? My plan has been to replace the battery, transmission fluid, motor oil, spark plugs, and ECM, and see if it'll run. I still need to look into what to do about the other control units: if they're damaged and if they need to be replaced, so advice on what to watch for with that would be helpful. Am I on the right track? Are there other flooded car issues to watch for, tips & tricks, signs pointing the way? I'm doing all this on a budget, necessity being the mother of invention and all. Thanks so so much & Respect, Lindsey
