Any ideas what this could be?
I drove my 02 dodge stratus through a deep puddle last night 1/2 a mile from my home. The 2.4l DOHC engine immediately started bogging out and would barely accelerate, but in neutral it seemed to rev fine. I drove home under 3 krpm and shut the car off. Today, I checked the air filter and everything was totally dry, no signs of moisture. Checked the spark plugs and I didn't detect any moisture there either. Checked oil, and didn't appear milky.
When I tried to start it, It started very shaky, ran for a few seconds and stalled. I tried to start it again, but engine wouldn't turn over. Tried starting it a couple hours later, and it started right up. It sounded like it was running smooth, no shake, no noise. Then it just stalled and I can't get it to start again. Any ideas what it could be?
