Okay back in the day, when i joined i had an 89na. hey its still a supra, and i still loved it well...



as you can see the road was washed away underneath it, well you cant see really, or i wouldnt of gone through it like i had before.. anyways.. the motor got hydrolocked.. somehow, no rod or anything were bent, i pulled over a gallon of water out of the block, fun stuff eh? checked the ECU, seemed fine, MAF was fucked, replaced that, TPS was fucked just got that replaced (thanks ideal) i know the o2 is toast as well, yet to get to that though. the guy who looked at it upped the timing, and the idle, becuase it use to jump from 500rpms to 1500.. over and over. so now that the tps is replaced its staying steady at 2k rpms, where the guy turned it up to. doesnt jump around anymore. so im going to turn everything back to what it should be, but in the process, i decided to rev it up a little, and when it hits 5500 it shuts the car off... any ideas what the hell that is? itll restart and all just at 5500 kills the car.

also anything else you think i should check before i try and get this thing driveable again? im bored, need to keep my mind busy, caught the girl cheating on me, and this is the only thing working, and im waiting for parts for the other supra.. so im going to bring this once back to life for a daily summer driver..

thanks.

man, i htink i remember when you did that... that shit was a long time ago.

just be sure there is no residual moistur eleft in the oil pan. it can damage bearings big time.

youre probably in the clear though.

make sure the brakes are severely corroded, same for the flywheel/pressureplate

also make sure that there is no water in the tranny or rear end. and did you drain your gas tank too?

lol myself i probabaly wouldnt have attempted to drive through, unless i had a 4x4 lol. but make sure everything is dry, and theres a pretty good chance the brakes and maybe the pressure plate/flywheel are corroded too. did the water leak inside the car?

hey it came over on a boat! no reason it cant float! :D

about a 1/2" of water started getting in, then it made it out... then the engine went clunk.. so i gave up at that point. no sense trying to break the rods.

haha my dad calls me a uboat commander now ....

anyways usually in all honest that road is usually maybe 2-3 inches deep of water if it rains, lots of people go through it, this time though tey were building houses in the fields, and they routed draining off towards the road.. and i didn know that!..

lol... I dunno man... looks like feet of water to me...... I did some shit like that when I had an old subaru wagon when I was like 17 ..... the car actualy made it through (runnin on like 2 cys when I made it out) water came up to my knees in the car though... when I opened the door ... it was like a scene in a slap stock movie, all the water pouring out..... needless to say, the car always had a "wet" kinda smell after that

Toenails thru the radiator is the only way to go thru a puddle like that. One of my old Camaros made it thru a puddle that crested over the hood and sent a wave up to the windshield, my instinct was to floor it though, so I did as soon as I noticed how deep it was. That thing never skipped a beat.

You'll need to change all the fluids for sure. Make sure the trans and diff vents aren't clogged. Check the distributor cap for water inside. Now that your TPS has beed messed with, it will need to be reset per the TSRM. Hope it didn't tweak a rod when it hydrolocked. I've seen them towed back in a month after a hydrolock with one or more rods hanging out of the block.

ahah similar experience here. i will always remember the time when i was about 10 and i told my dad to go through this field and it only looked liek the puddles were like at the most 5 inches deep...i couldnt have been more wrong, i think from the ground to the bottom of the door the truck had about 20-26 inches it was lifted about 7 inches with 32 inch tires lol, and when he was going thruogh my dads like i thought you said this puddle wasnt deep llol, i think the puddle was about an inch or 2 from the bottom of the door LoL so about 18 inches deep, i think most of it was mud we sunk into. we hit the puddle at like 20kmh and pulled out at like 3kmh haha good thing he had 4wd on. lol the engine was fine though, but he made me clean the truck tho, and from then on he didnt trust me on judging how deep stuff is :lol:
