So I may have gotten really lucky today. Car has been running funny since yesterday (been misfiring) so today I pulled the plug after work an found this
Yes thats water and all 4 looked like that, so I pulled the VC and was amazed Ti find no water on the top end. Replaced the plugs and wires and am going to drain the oil tmrw.
So she sits like this and depending on my cars condition I may or may not be at round up

I smell guinea pig.

Rain is coming down good again. Not to mention the thunder and lightning.

Don't even like to drive in the rain. Won't even drive through water that's more than a couple inches deep. Seen to many messed up cars due to water.

Just came back home from work, It's rainy... And I had scary moment having to drive about 10 meters in really deep water, ran it at first gear reving it up in hopes to build up enough pressure in exhaust that wouldn't let water get inside for those few seconds. Crossed it fine but have to wait till morning to check if there are any consequences to it :(
I drowned my SPI once so I know it's not fun...

I wouldn't worry about water going up a exhaust pipe. I'd be worried about water pooling up and over the front bumper right into the air intake snorkel on the grill. That and it coming inside the car lol
