Default Range Rovers in the range

Went out to the family farm and had an awesome day offroading. At the end of the day I went across a trail that was flooded with about 6-8 inches of water - the side of the trail collapsed and I ended up with my passenger side pretty far under water. It came back to life after we got it out, but I am going to dry everything out (all computers, replace fuses) before I try to fire it up.

lol well there is a trail there, and it was pretty shallow. when i went across the trail collapsed and i slid down towards the pond, couldn't do anything to get out of it though. not saying it wasn't a bad decision, but it is what it is.

Usually when they don't start back up it has to do with either the engine being hydrolocked, which the intake is on the driver side so that didn't happen (at least not that way). I read a lot on rangerovers.net and the forum there, and with no hydrolocking everyone's rover started back up once dried. Some had to replace relays and spray the BeCM down with methylated spirits, but beyond that its just all cleaning and drying like you said.

I think you're on the right track with cleaning it out. I wouldn't worry about having hydrolocked it, I was out with a friend that went in on the driver side about as deep as you did. I think he got real lucky, but he's still driving it around today.

There are a few tweaks to the airbox you can do to keep water out of your engine, if you find yourself "boating" more often Or just go to a straight cone filter, they look kinda ugly, but it gets the job done.

Great job with the pictures!

I would pull the air filter to check to see if any water got in there and damaged it.
