Hurricane Sandy Damage
We got hammered by Hurricane Sandy last fall. I changed the oil & filter removing about 2 gallons of water from the oil. I suspect I have water in the Automatic Transmission too. I read about changing the fluid by dropping the pan & changing the filter. I also read to pull the lines off the radiator to flush the torque converter. I don't think the water went down the carburetor but I'm not 100% sure. Is there anything else I should be looking at? Transfer case, front & rear differentials? Its been sitting since the storm;I did not try to start it after the storm (battery was dead anyhow). Because of the cold all I've done so far is drain & replace the oil & filter as well as hosed off the entire vehicle with clean water both inside & out. Any recommendations??
Besides changing the fluids, it would be a good idea to disconnect, clean then re-connect the wiring harness connections. Hard to say if water could get into the converter, but if you find it in the rest of the trans, or in the engine I would assume so.

Senators and Congressman should wear uniforms like NASCAR drivers so we could identify their corporate sponsors....
