Hi Guys,

I have a 04 RX8, Manual.... it has the big pod filter from the previous owner, in the last Sydney downpour I hit a big puddle & the car stalled, would not start again, I had it towed home and tried the next day, no go..... so far I hate:

* attempted to deflood many times
- remove plugs
- disconnect crank angle plug
- disconnect fuel pump relay / fuse
- crank over many times (10 seconds at a time - few seconds rest)

* brand new plugs

Still wont start, I also tested to see if I have spark which I do.... I have probably pulled the plugs 10 times, they are usually coated with oil/fuel I clean and dry with compressed air and try again, nothing.

I keep the battery on charge whilst I do all this. Tried different battery, fully charged.

any other suggestions?? every time I deflood it doesn't even come close to starting, I really don't know what else to try?

Thanks all.

Please disregard.... after hooking up a new battery, a charger and another car running with jumper leads, I finally managed to get it deflooded using the removal of the fuel pump connector method. (took the plugs out 10 times also).

Changed teh coils the next day and it is much easier to start now.
