Are you saying in the cylinder and out the plug hole ??. If so the head gasket blew. Make sure you have the head inspected. Most auto parts stores will send them out for you. Not knowing how much corrosion has occured over the years its best to pay for a good inspection. If it was overheated its possible the head warped also.

Stalled 06 Ford Explorer in Water, now it won't start.

How deep was the water? If it was above mid way on the motor, you probably got water in the cylinders. You also may have gotten water under the distributor cap. remove a spark plug and have a helper turn over the motor as you watch for spitting from the spark plug hole. Check the spark plugs closest to the back of the truck. I hope there was no water in the cylinders - if there is spitting, you may have bent a valve - or worse! If no spitting, get some wire dryer spray from your local auto parts store, remove the distributor cap, and liberally spray the inside of the cap and the rotor, as well as they distributor plate and assembly. Give it 30 mins or so to dry out and replace cap, then try starting. If no starting, remove a spark plug and wire. Put the wire on the plug and hold with some INSULATED pliers, holding the electrode end of the plug on the engine. Have a helper start the motor and watch for a BLUE spark from the plug. If the spark is yellow or orange, you don't have enough power to run the motor and may have a faulty coil or coilpack.
Hope this helps and thanks for using Fixya!!

I drove my 1988 hilux surf 2.0 petrol thru water it stopped half way thru and theres water in the intake when you turn the key all you hear is a click had the starter out and it has been wet

If you got water in the intake, you probably also got water into the cylinders. With any luck, you haven't bent any connecting rods. The starter will not turn the motor over because it is impossible to compress water. Put the starter back in and remove the spark plugs and try it again. If there is water in the cylinders, the starter will now crank the engine over and spit the water out of the spark plug holes. You will want to crank it over several times and dry your spark plugs off before reinstalling them. Hopefully, nothing is bent or broken.

Car turns over but does not start. Battery good

If it over heated, could have bad head gasket's, fill radiator with water, crank engine with radiator cap off, if water is push out of radiator while cranking, bad head gaskets', also remove spark plug's, crank engine if any water, bad head gasket, also when spark plug's removed, check for any water on them.If there is any water on plug's, bad head gasket, also could try doing a cylinder compression test, if bad compression, head gasket, no compression, wont start that way.

My car blow white smoke

you may have a blown cylinder gasket, or cracked cylinder head, remove spark plugs and crank it over and see if coolant spits out from holes or remove riadiator cap crank engine over and see if compression is leaking into cooling system.

My 96 Isuzu Rodeo does not indicate that it is overheating but the hoses connecting to the radiator swell up and look like they are ready to pop. Now, there is a really loud noise like a metal fan hitting...

sounds like you might have a head or head gasket problem, combustion pressure leaking into radiator/cooling system causing pressure build up (hose swelling) the noise could also be from this failure.
get engine warm so hoses swell, turn off engine remove spark plugs leave radiator cap on and pressure from cooling system as is(hoses swollen) wait 5-10 minutes crank over engine with plugs removed and keep clear of spark plug holes, put paper in front of spark plug holes if water comes out of spark plug hole or slight wetting of paper with water head or head gasket is at fault.

My '99 Cougar heated up the other day and when i parked and popped the hood some gray smoke came out. Now the car over heats a lot and the heater will only blow cold air out

Possible blown head gasket...sounds like it, remove the spark plugs and do a compression test, sometimes you will find water coming out of the spark plug hole with a blown head gasket, pull the plugs and turn the engine over, with the radiator full of water, if water starts spitting out of any of the spark plug's a cracked head, or blown head gasket.
