Someone cheated me sale this car to me he didn't mention this car water damage before and i have no odea about it how much water in but i read abput that hurricane flood in USA was very heavy so i guess its full of water everywhere. Car already have someone notifications in dashboard even working well but just 3 days ago got the gear problem now can drive but rpm going high with accelerate but speed very slow and engine sounds like explod but not going to high gear stuck in low gear only and manual shifting not working also like car locked in one gear only and jerkung when change gear
Anything above the wheel hubs, on a normal everyday pavement pounding automobile, is way too much water. In addition to the never-ending electrical issues, everything potentially (probably) ingested water through vent breathers. Trans, transfer case, rear differential, and engine via air intake if it was above the grill. As oldtech mentioned, water of any kind is extremely bad news...salt water, and it's game over.
Word of advice to anyone looking at a used car anywhere, no matter dealer or private... ALWAYS check ALL the seatbelt latches inside w/ a flashlight. If they went under water, they'll be cruddy and/or corroded INSIDE unless replaced. Especially the rarely used ones. No one is going to replace all of a car's seat belt latches on a flood spoof. People look at you funny when you're doing it, but who cares right? First thing the pre-sale inspectors look at on any vehicles that have come in to the auction from a flood ravaged area especially. It's a non-destructive quick check. If they even suspect flood damage, it goes on to a more thorough evaluation to confirm or deny. When the trucks started rolling in from New York and North Jersey after Sandy, the flood vehicles started hitting the auction block here hard. They've trucked them all the way up here from the gulf states after hurricanes in hopes of mixing them in and getting away with passing them off. Once flagged as "flood damaged" by the auction, it's public knowledge to all bidders and the bidding prices go WAAAY down.
The foreigners used to like to come over here and buy up used vehicles at the auction by the container loads to ship over seas.
This was very likely one of them.
