I drive a Mazda B2600 from 1991, and I've gotten some serious rain in the last couple of days. As a result I think my truck is having some problems related to the flooding. The water level was high enough to get my carpets wet so before I start my car I check my oil to see that there's not any water in it and then do the same with the air filter. Everything comes back clean so I proceed to open all the doors and the hood and let the car air out for a while. I then try to start the car. It turns over and starts for < 1.5s and then it turns goes out. I leave it alone and now I'm trying to diagnose the problem. I'm wondering if I got a little water in my fuel tank or if this a symptom of a more serious problem. Any ideas?

    I doubt you have water in the tank, as all the inlets for fuel, which would be the same for water, are much higher than you describe. I'd venture to assume there's something else going on. Is the check engine light on? If so, get the codes read. – Pᴀᴜʟsᴛᴇʀ2 Jul 14 '19 at 16:37
