So, all the snow is melting here and causing a lot of puddles on the streets. I was driving yesterday and there were so many puddles so I had to drive like 5 km/h over them when I saw then until my car just died out. I have cold air intake and maybe water got in there? But anyone else know what the prob may be? I try and start it, it cranks and everything but just doesnt start. Any suggestions would be great. Thanks

Take off your filter and see if there is water in there or in the throttle body.

Your distributor cap may be wet and not give you the proper spark.

1st: How big were the puddles and when you went through them did it go into the area in which your CAI filter was positioned?
2nd: Do you have a bypass valve?
3rd: I really doubt you hydrolocked your engine. Maybe let it sit in a dry place for several hours and try restarting it. It's common for cars driven in lots of watery conditions to have electrical problems.
PS - if his filter had/may not have water in it it will make no difference as to tell him he sucked up any water. The filter housing may have a few droplets of water inside it but this does not mean that he necc. "sucked" water up in his CAI tubing. The filter would have to be submerged in water for a split second for that to happen.

take off the distributor cap, look for water. if there is some, use a hairdryer to get the water out.

Check the spark plugs for signs of water. if there is water on them, buy new ones. there may also be water still in the cylinder, so pop the plug and let dry.
