So last night I decided to go wheeling at a local pit, I was riding a mud trail cover in water and I went from two inches deep too two feet deep really quick. I got towed out and drove to my buddies house to pull the plugs and make sure every thing was good. As I go to drive home I realize that first gear was jolting and my clutch was acting funny. This morning I go to drive it and it won't go into gear AT ALLLL. I don't know what to do about this except drop 700$ at a shop. Anybody else have any ideas? HELP

Mine did the same once. I can't remember for the life of me what the part is called... But on the left side of the engine there should be a blue box with spark plug wires.
A guy opened it up, sprayed wd40 in it and dried it out. Basically since it got wet, made the jeep hesitate. I wasn't able to drive 5 feet without it stalling out. It may be the distributor cap? Idk. I'll find out haha.
Basically it needed to dry then it started running like a beast again. Haha

Oh. And make sure you hose out your radiator real good. I got mine clogged and ended up blowing it up.
