car wont start after water in brake booster pan
I have a 2000 528i with 107k. Last week it rained extremely hard for a few days and my daughter parked my car face down on a slope. 60 mins later she tries to start the car and it's blowing white smoke out the tail , idling very badly and would not move when you put it in gear. Eventually it shuts off and is very hard to restart. after about 12 starts the white smoke disappeared. the car shut off and now will not start (engine turns over and sounds like it's trying to start). i've changed the plugs, the old ones were in good shape with no oil or soot, and still cannot start. I did notice there was a lot of water in the pan where the brake booster is. I noticed a few days before, that upon the first few presses of the brake I heard a whooshing sound, and it felt like something was rubbing against sandpaper. is there a chance I have water in my vacuum system that's preventing the car from starting?
I did check the SES codes. i get the p0300. it listed all 6 cylinders as mis-firing. i also got a code for a crankshaft position sensor. I did replace the camshaft sensors (in and out) last winter. could someone tell me (bmw dealer gave me the wrong parts when i was having problems with the intake camshaft sensor, thats how i ended up changing in and out sensors) that there is a difference between the camshaft sensor and crankshaft sensor. I think that would be my next step in trying to get my baby back on the road.
