Got stuck and partially "flooded", seeking advice
Yesterday I went off work at 6pm, then drove my 11 2.5X into nearby national forest to explore a dried pond I found on google earth. Had some mud fun there, but the last try was not very careful and got stuck...Luckily there were some guys playing ATV nearby, they went home and drove a 4X4 truck back to the hole and towed me out. My Forrie was sitting in mud for about half an hour, there was maybe 3 inch muddy water at the passenger side, and I didnt know how bad it was in the engine bay...but the two exhaust were not merged. The car could not crank after that, although the lights and window still work, the battery is not wet at all.
I ended up calling AAA for a flatbed and got the car home almost midnight. My wife gives me a silence treatment, which worries me more...
Now my thought is just letting the car dry out for another day or two, then trying to start it. If not, which parts would be the on checking list?
Please guys, give me some advice, much appreciated
