possible water damage??
Yesterday I drove my 320d home in torrential rain. When I turned up a side street the water coming down the street was really bad. The car stuttered , but got me through the stream, and then promptly died. It wouldn't turn over (no warning lights on the dash, everything normal), so I called my dad for a tow home. While waiting for him I tried it a few times, and it actually caught once, then died again.
We got home, and I left it to dry out in the garage. After about an hour it caught and held, but it didn't sound happy. I left it running, hoping it would burn off any water that got into the exhaust, and after a while (a cloud of water vapour emanating from the exhaust), it started running smoothly.
I hoped that would be the end of it, but I am still worried, because this morning (starting it cold), it took a few seconds before it ran smoothly. I drove it to work, and experienced no problems, but starting it after work it did the same as this morning. When it's hot it goes normally, but...
If anyone can tell me whether I should be worried or patient I would really appreciate it.
