      Well, it finally happened. The damn thing made it through Harvey, but the water came up way too fast and I didn't see it until it was above the bottom of the door. The car started and drove fine until I slowed down at an intersection and the RPMs dropped and the car stalled. At that point I was high and dry but, while the car would still crank and run, I couldn't get the RPMs high enough to get into first gear without stalling. I tried for some time to get it going, but finally gave up. While I was in the car, after I got out, and after I walked back and checked on it nearly an hour later, there was a very strong smell of gasoline.

      The electrical system seems to be fine and water got nowhere near the battery.

      Thanks in advance for any tips.

      P.S. I didn't know if this should go in ~talk, ~creative, or ~hobbies, since it is really me asking for advice more than anything else.
