Leave it a while to dry out. The battery and wiring system may just have got "a shock" from the water.

SOURCE: 1999 oldsmobile delta battery changed but won't power on

If everything else checks out Ok in the ignition system (electrical) and if the engine and transmission turn freely,that sound like you might have starter drag.Check to see if you have good connections at the starter.I know its new but check your battery for 12 volts,good connections,ect.

SOURCE: where is the petcock located on a 1999 oldsmobile

Most are difficult to get to and so many don't work correctly that it it's almost silly to even use it. Far easier is to simply remove lower hose from radiator. It works better and faster. Just be careful though...Don't do hot or you may get an unwanted scalding bath!!

Waterpump went out and now there's water in the oil - what's wrong?

Water pumps are notorious for sudden failure without any warning. Often the first sign of trouble is a light on the dash board telling you your engines in running very hot. If you have covered a considerable distance you might have done further damage to the engine. we had an old vehicle were this happened. The engine had a system where the oil and water ran either side of a thin metal membrane about the engine. I am no expert, but I fear you have cracked that division between the water and oil

1995 olds royale 88; fixed fuel pump, starts then shut it off and re start but nothing happens; sat over night, started right up three times in a row but the fourth not a chance; what's wrong?

You'll have to figure out if it is a fuel or ignition problem.
Is the check engine light on ? Have you checked for trouble codes ?
It could be a relay, the ignition module, coil, key switch, or a list of other things.

fill the tank with new fuel,, and add a can of heet, or other water removing chemical, ( at any parts store) you may have to do this with each fill up for a while depending on how much water was put into the tank,, if you believe it was a gallon or more, this would be a long process, if thats the case, you can either run the fuel out, by attaching a length of hose to the fuel supply hose to the motor, and turning the key to the "on " position,, letting the pump remove the fuel, or drop the tank, remove the pump from the tank, and turning it over,

I have the same car, and I had to change the crankshaft and oil pump. while doing so, the 3piece timing set had to be replaced and the gaskets for the timing set, oil pump and water pump had to be replaced....along with the oil filter and oil. it's basically rebuilding the bottom of the engine.

Its a EGR Valve( exhaust gas recirculation) that is an emmisions device it recirculates exhaust gases back thru the engine to be burnt again to make the engine run cleaner and to help cool the combustion chamber...If the valve sticks and exhaust gases are going back into the enging at the wrong time that would cause your concern..sometimes you can remove and clean the EGR VALVE and ports.and sometimes you will have to replace the valve Hope this helps Good Luck
