Wasnt sure where to put this so feel free to move it. Went out playing with my new tires th eother day. Went through a mud hole I'd been through the week before (and 2 inches of rain before) and was supprised when my hood dissappeared in the wave of water that came up. Then my jeep sputtered out and died. I am guessing the distributer got wet. I waited a couple minutes and it finally fired up and ran fine. Anybody have any handy ways to keep this from occuring? I know the simplest way would be to not cross mud and water, but then why have a Jeep? Thanks guys.

Oh, its a 98 TJ 2.5

its called you most likely hydro locked your motor.have you checked you engine oil since?have you checked all you fluids for water in them? did you look in the airbox to see if water was in it?

if you ever go through a water hole and the jeep stalls never try to restart it.always pull the vehicle out ,check for water in the air ways.if you do have water in the box you'll need to pull all the plugs before trying to crank the motor over.
