water sucked into intake from car wash
My wife took our durango that I just bought 2 months ago to the car wash. 99 5.2L I think. She said that when she went into the out car wash that the engine quit. She started it back and she said it ran very rough and was spraying/squirting water out from the engine area. She is not sure where it came from. She said it ran rough all the way home and by the time she got home it was running better. Now it runs but seems to have a miss. I looked it over and it has a bent fender on the pass side and a gap where a side spray of water could go in from the wash. That is the side that the intake is on. The intake is missing the piece that routes it into the fender. So it is just open and then goes to the filter. I think it could have sucked up the water into the intake.
What do you think would cause the miss?
