Enginei missing after finally cranking!

Guys, after the bronco was in water to the bottoms of the windows adn I have had no time , after a month adn a half of slow fixing it started up today for its first road test. It started up way better and ran way better than expected btu still has a miss when idling(you can hear the chug at teh exhaust) anyway, it has new plugs and wires on it, what else could be causing this miss. I haevnt replaced teh dist. cap, could that be it. I want it to run again miss free liek before the water incident!

Re: Enginei missing after finally cranking!

have you at least taken the dist cap off? when i'm in water alot the contacts on the cap and rotor will start corroding...make sure both are shiny, not red-brown..if they are you might as well replace them..pretty cheap

It's a Jeep thing? My Bronco thing will run over your little Jeep thing.

Re: Deep water

You didn't suck water into the engine, did you? You should also check/drain ALL the fluids in case they have water in them - engine oil, tranny oil (auto OR man), t-case oil, power steering, wheel bearings, diffs, gas tank, etc. The smog pump may have sucked some in and pumped it into the exhaust manifolds and catalytic converter, cracking them. The alternator and starter brushes may have been softened, and they may wear out in a few minutes of run time. There are a LOT of things that don't respond well to a dunking.
