Question about 2000 Ford Focus
You may have soaked some of the sensitive electronics located within the engine compartment, like sensors, modules, or even part of the ignition system. Going through a puddle would not damage your plugs or wires, so don't start by replacing them (unless you can tell there is something else wrong with them).
You might want to disconnect connectors, look for signs of moisture, and dry out components like modules, plugs, ignition coil pack or PCM with a hair drier.
As for hydraulic lock, you probably would not have picked up enough water to flood any cylinders, unless you submerged the engine, but a compression test would never hurt.

You need to do a compression check as the engine probably has sucked up the water into the engine this usually hydraulics the engine bending connecting rods causing a misfire. Or if u r lucky it might just have fouled the plugs.
