You will probably have to Dismantle the engine to replace the bent con rod,but first remove the spark plugs and see if the engine cranks over if it diesal take out the glow plugs.

water is in some of the ignition parts ,dry it out good also try compressed air to blow off excess water and a spray of WD 40 will diperse any water in spark plug wires, a hair dryer can help but be careful not to burn any wires or plastic parts.other thing did any water get in the motor ?????? remove spark plugs and roll motor over by hand to check and see what is in cylinder ,look at plugs for signs of water .

So why tell us-- if you have no problems?

Why drive into any water over 3" deep?
Makes no sense to ruin a $30,000 vehicle

Once you drive thru deep water NO ONE

I drove my kia optima in a deep puddle and now it won't start it makes one clicking sound and nothing happens the starter is good but water did get into the intake and water did get past the butter fly...


Did you crank the engine with the spark plugs out in order to discharge any water that may be trapped in the combustion chambers? Water cannot be compressed. Hope you didn't hydrolock it.

AFTER CHANGING A THERMASTAST , I EXPERIENCED HYDRO-LOCK OF THE ENGINE WHAT IS HYDRO-LOCK MEAN ???


How do you know the engine hydrolocked? Did your mechanic tell you?
Hydrolocking occurs when the engine gets filled with a liquid such as oil or water, and because it's not compressible the way air is, it jams up the engine and prevents it from turning. It might bend parts and cause damage if you're not lucky. Generally the spark plugs should be removed and the engine turned to expel the liquid and allow it to turn again. Then you'll have to determine the extent of the damage.
If you changed the thermostat yourself, and in the process, stuck a garden hose down the air intake instead of filling the radiator, you could have filled it with enough water to hydrolock it. Otherwise, it's pretty unusual that a thermostat replacement could cause hydrolocking.

Does the engine turn fully or not? If not the connecting rods are more than likely twisted to your pistons if he hit the deep puddle at a fast rate of speed. The pressure of the water would of passed through the engine's crack seal producing deadly effects to the engine

Got water in the oil


Marvel Mystery Oil always did the trick for me when dealing with noisy lifters. Apart from that, There are products over the counter that will flush the system before changing the oil. Hope this answers your question. All the best!
