    Have you had this vehicle scanned for codes?

    Did you flush the tank and change the filter since yesterday's post and today's post?

    this is the trouble with buying flood damaged cars, 1. you never know what they went through or ran like before you bought them, 2. you could wind up replacing every sensor on the thing before figuring out what is wrong with it and long and short it could be something as simple as a bad ECM, that's where i would start you can take them to advance auto parts and have them checked (or you used to be able to, not sure if they still do that for you or not) if it's bad they could tell you there, if it's good then you have that part knocked out and it didn't cost you anything but a little time.
