plugs out and crank the water out , put your finger over plug holes as you do this and will help purge water from crank ! Plug caps away from plug holes !! have a battery jump pack ready as will take a while ! if plugs ok then clean with carb/brake cleaner once most water is out then put a sqwert of fuel in each cyl then plugs in hand tight and get cracking coz if left too long crank etc already rusting ! DONT STOP till you got it running as you will have to clean the plugs several times ! Try all three plugs at first then if struggling two plugs and one out with rag over hole and plug cap away safe from plug hole so not to spark fuel !!!! NO SMOKING !!! Fire extinguisher handy !!! once running ON ALL THREE CYL'S , not one or two as you can sieze the engine take to lake and give a good run and making sure all cyls working ! can do this while strapped to trailer in water as long water circulating !
There is a small drain hole that allows any water to drain out of the spark plug well. This drain hole often becomes clogged with mud or other debris. Blow the hole out with compressed air or use a small pick to open up hole and let water drain out.
Can be a real mess. Just how much water? Puddle or sunk in a lake. If it was lots of water, I would drain the fluids, (oil, trans, etc), refill. Pull the spark plugs out and tunr the motor using the starter. Put a towel over the holes to minimize spraying stuff everywhere. Spray some WD40 into the spark plug holes and replace spark plugs, Hopefully things will be okay after that. May have bent a connecting rod, damaged electrical components, etc. Good luck
remove spark plug were the water was at. put your finger over the hole without burning yourself. have someone to turn the engine over a few times to see if more water comes out. try this on both spark plug holes one at a time. if you continue getting water from each plug hole then i would say you have a blown head gasket or maybe both depending if both plugs came from the same side,if not then both head gaskets are leaking. that problem would also make the truck or car run ruff/missing/hard to start. hope this will help you.
There is a drain hole on the side of the head that leads to the bottom side of the spark plug access hole. This allows water to drain but also lets all outside contaminants in. Often dirt, mud and crud will be packed around the base of the spark plug. After removing seat, fuel tank, and coil cap: always, ALWAYS blow contact cleaner and compressed air through both ends of the spark plug access hole before putting a socket to the plug. I have found small rocks and dirt down beside the spark plug before. If you loosen the plug before cleaning around it the off-road crud can fall down into the threads and the combustion chamber.
The water leaks down into the spark plug holes. Remove the coil packs and spark plug wires, and sop up all the water in the spark plug hole. Leave the plugs in so water does not get into the engine. dry out the wires with an air gun, or just let dry. when everything is totally dry, put everything together and start.
