Check Engine light came on after driving through a flooded inters. Did the MIL's die?
Well I was driving around town about 3 or 4 days ago, during a big rain storm, and I drove through a flooded intersection. I then noticed that my check engine light came on shortly after that. I drove home, didn't notice the car misfiring or any other peculiar actions, and disconected the negative battery cable. The next day, a good 12 hours later, I reconnected it and drove around a little. Although at first the check engine light didn't come on it later on did. I don't want to spend $40+ to have the local Ford dealership look at my car as well as have to be put through the discomfort of giving them my car all day so I'm trying to fix it on my own. Through the process of troubleshooting it would seem logical that the MIL's got wet, obviously, and maybe they went bad. Has anyone else had this happen to them and does my deduction sound right? Thanks.
