2004 Toyota Tacoma 3.4L was submerged in water for hours. It was running while in water then died and wont start. Getting spark and fuel to cylinders but has low compression in 3 cylinders. What next?

Check timing belt/condition to see if timing has jumped. Another possibility is cylinder wash down caused by water entering the cylinders wiping away the oil inside the cylinders. This could cause a low compression issue as the rings will not seal properly. You can remove the spark plugs and squirt some oil in each individual cylinder then crank the engine over to distribute the oil inside each cylinder to help raise compression.

I guess my first question is, have you checked the computer for trouble codes ?
With water on the engine the problem could be a long list of things including water in a harness connector.
Even the plug wires could have been damaged.

Engine got wet

Water on the spark plug wires will do this, especially if your car has a distributor that is not solid state. Water gets inside the distributor cap of the older vehicles and shorts the spark to other cylinders than the ones intended which causes the rough running.
To push the water off the wires and out of a distributor cap, spray WD-40 anywhere you do not want the water so you can run the vehicle. Be very careful if you do this inside an older cars distributor cap since The WD-40 will also break down the bearing lubricant down the shaft. Use this in an emergency to get you home etc, then see a mechanic to make sure you didn't cause any bearing issues.

Yes my 06 Nissan altma shows a code # p0303 , the#3 cylinder misfire I changed out the plugs and coil pack on the #3 cylinder the #3 cylinder is wet maybe from water not gas or oil but there is no water on...

Likely a head gasket problem, between the water jacket and the one cylinder. Look for bubbles in the radiator with the radiator cap off before it heats up. Or run compression check on that cylinder. See if it holds the pressure after you stop turning over the engine.

In spite of clutch pushed in all the way, the gears will not shift into any gear. Any ideas of how this problem might be solved?

Your clutch is not working. It is a hydraulic system just like brakes. If the fluid has leaked out , or gotten low enough to allow air in the system , the clutch will not work. The system can be refilled and bled of air , however , most likely it will just leak again. The leak can be in the master cylinder , which is easily replaceable , or it could be in the slave cylinder , which is a bigger job.
Many modern cars have an internal slave cylinder which means it is inside of the transmission bell housing , and unfortunately , the transmission has to be removed from the car to replace the part.
Some cars have the slave cylinder mounted externally which is an easier fix.
I CHECKED A PARTS SUPPLIER and found that if your car has the 3.0 L engine , the slave cylinder looks to be the externally mounted version , which is good news.
