I would doubt highly that your motor is hydrolocked. I had an integra with a CAI and the water line was midway to the door and the majoirty of the engine was under water, I started it up(4 years ago, I was a dumbass) and it was not running right and decided to do ins fraud(another dumbass thing), had to pour a gallon of water down the intake tube and run it down the block 3 or 4 times for it to hydrolock. I still have the bent rod at home in my garage. From what it sounds like, little moisture in the engine, should be fixable, relatively easy.

I hope it is'nt locked.I m gonna call him and get my car towed home.I think he just wants to make money replacing the engine,and does'nt really wanna get it to start.If i have a bent rod i will get cams and forged internals,mide as well while its apart.My family is'nt too happy with me not wanting him to do the work.He has been a ford mechanic for 20yrs.He is one of those guys who is adamint about keeping everything stock,Iwill never hear the end of this[&o]

I had the same thing happen to my 2004 3.9L V6.... I hit a huuuuge puddle, sucked a bunch of water up in the engine, and it died. I had it towed back to the house, pulled the plugs, drained the oil, and turned it by hand to get all of the water out. Put new oil and filter in it, put the plugs back in, and it fired right up.... but now it is knocking like hell. I pulled the valve covers, and the rocker arms and pushrods are all good. I ran it for a about 2 minutes and everything moves fine but there is no oil getting to the top, but my oil pressure reads fine. What do I do next? Gonna do a compression test in the morning, just picked up the tools for that.

Aaaaaaaaaaand before everyone says "put butter on it cuz it's toast" or "might as well buy a new motor"... I really don't have the budget for that. If it has to be totally rebuilt, so be it. I realistically only have about a $1000 budget at the moment cuz my ol' lady lost her job last year and unemployment has already run out. We are struggling, and unfortunately this is my daily driver.
