Problem after driving through flood
Anyone else affected by the floods? On my journey to work this morning I went through a couple of deep-ish patches of water (even turned round at one particular point as three cars had broken down ahead of me and it looked just too deep to risk).
Anyway, a bit later on in the journey I was in "drive", and suddenly all power went (the car is a 2.0FSI automatic - not DSG). It felt just as if I'd shifted the gear stick to neutral because the engine continued to free rev, but no power was being transferred to the wheels. I coasted to the side of the road (even though still in Drive!) and stopped, and whenever I moved the gear stick from neutral to "drive" or reverse, the whole car lurched violently forward or back - it just did not engage into gear cleanly at all.
Stopped the engine, restarted a couple of minutes later and all was fine! I was just wondering if anyone has any suggestions as to what could have been wrong to cause these symptoms? Cheers.
