Start in the rear; test the battery first; then if all is well turn the key to the '0' key position and test all compotents that should work if all is good there, turn to try to start, if not nothing clicks or turns over then remove the starter and bench test it or take it to Auto Zone...if you have time, check the oil stick for water..Just go ahead and change the oils after you remove the spark plugs...never crank a engine that may have sucked water thru the air filter!!!

it copuld have gotten flooded and washed the cylinders out from leaking injectors or something unable to diag over internet but before you pay someone to mess with it take out the spark plugs pour a few drops of oil down the cylinders and then reassemble and see if it will start
put it in a warm garage with the hood up and let it dry out.(this is cheaper than ANY alternative.if you aint got a garage and the car was hot when flooded it should dry out within a couple of days.....i hope.
IF CAR TURN OVER NOT CRANKING AFTER A SHORT DRIVE WHEN ENGINE HOT.DIRTY CLOGGED FUEL INJECTORS FLOODING ENGINE OUT.CLEAN FUEL INJECTORS.FILL GAS TANK UP.PUT A CAN OF SEAFOAM IN FUEL TANK.DRIVE CAR AROUND TO HELP FLUSH OUT CARBON ON THE INJECTORS SEATS TO STOP GAS DRIPPING CAUSING FLOODING.IF CAR WONT TURN OVER.BAD BATTERY CABLES OR STARTER.SCAN IT FOR THEFT SECURITY PROBLEMS. IF STARTER TURNS OVER NO CRANK ENGINE FLOODING DUE TO DIRTY FUEL INJECTORS.
When a gauge goes bad, you have to decide if it is the sending unit or the gauge itself. If you unplug and short the wire to the sending unit, the gauge should go to max (one way or the other), and the opposite when the wire is not connected to anything. If that works, then it is probably the sending unit. If that does not work, it is probably the gauge itself.
Your fuel injection pressure is probably leaking down causing gasoline
to leak into the cylinders and resulting in a hard hot starting
condition due to "flooding" of the engine. Try holding the accelerator
pedal all the way to the floor of the car like your trying to go
maximum speed down the highway and crank the engine for 10 seconds or
less at a time. That tells your computer to enter the "clear flood"
mode and stop injecting gas into the engine. Ask your repair shop to
measure the fuel pressure and see if the pressure is bleeding off too
What do I think the problem is. The driver is a moron.
How many computers do you think your car has? And you think they're water compatible? Tell your dad you saw advertising for a boat and then the bmw commercial came on and you got them confused.
Just for a quick test. put your laptop and desktop computer in the full bathtub, toss in your cell phone and see which one works after they dry out.
Then think to yourself how much time AND money you saved by trying to float the 540.
If you're lucky you liquid locked the motor and nothing else. this is where water from the flood seeps back in through the pistons from the exhaust and you try to crank start it and totally ruin the engine block by trying to compress liquid.
