    Recently took on water into my egine. I chaged out the spark plugs, chaged the oil. It wants to turn over but seems its not getting any spark. I replaced one of the igition coils and didnt see any spark when I went to turn it over. Im stuck, dont know where to go with it next. If anyone can help or has any sugestions, I'm willing to listen. Thanks again.

    Welcome to TW, I see you're in the Navy and your truck took on water? :facepalm:

    Did the water get inside the cab or just engine compartment?

    lets hope you didnt do any hydro locking damage.

    did it stall due to water being sucked in the intake?

    Well, to answer some of those questions. Went in at an angle. So no water got up my tailpipe. Stalled due to water being sucked into the intake. Pulled coils and plugs out and shot all the water. Took off the intake manifold and drained the water out as well. Changed the oil. So far, thats all I've done. I do not believe it is hydrolocked. Some water did get into the cab. And as it looks from Oswego Im going to have to remove the seats and carpet and clean that out. The ECU did not get wet. Nothing above the shifter had water damage.

    well i hope it just died due to not the right mixture of air and fuel cuz of the water, if it filled the cylinder it could possible have caused internal damage.


    your gonna want to get this thing started soon. any water left inside will start to rust some parts. not sure if the block is aluminium or not, but if that stuff starts to rust it wont be pretty

    I did check for spark with the #1 spark plug and coil out, no spark. I read somewhere to add a pinch of fuel down into the spark plug and try that.

    Hitch and wiring, aux back-up light, rear strobe lights, radio and underseat sub.
    Spark is controlled by the computer. I'm not sure which system the tacoma uses, but some engines use a crank position sensor. That tells the engine when to fire. Water inside connectors=no circuit. Disconnect ALL connectors, dry with compressed air, add a small amount of dielectric grease, and try again.
    Check your wet and dry compression as well. That'll tell you how much, if any, damage was done.

    Good luck!
