Hello wasn't sure where to post but I need help!

Went through a creek yesterday day 18 inches at the deepest and iron died (2004 5.3) tried to start it and it just clicked so had it towed home, did an inspection and saw there was a bit of water in the air filter so we decided to pull the plugs, water poured out of one, tried to crank it again and still wouldn't so stuck the breaker bar and tried to hand crank it and it's hard to crank and really hard at a certain spot.....

What's are the odds it bent a rod that fast?!?!?

When you tried to turn the engine over with a bar, did you have all the plugs out??

If one cylinder had water, others will also. It not turning over is a good sign that at least one other cylinder has water in it and forcing it can bend a rod. The chances are low but it is possible a rod is bent. Just get it running and deal with whatever happens later, if it happens.

Pull all the plugs out and crank it for several seconds after the last cylinder spews water. If you give the starter a rest every 20 seconds of cranking for about a 1/2 minute you should get pretty much all the water out. Do this a few times, make sure the plugs are dry. Use anti-seize on the plug threads before you install them.

Remove the intake ducting and look for more water. You will have to remove the MAF sensor and lightly blow it dry, and blow dryer will work on the low setting.

It will not crank with the starter, just clicks, by hand it's very hard to turn, and yes plugs are still out

Check the engine oil level, too high and you got water in there too.

With the pugs out it should crank over easy if your battery and starter are good.

I've hydrolocked engines before and always got them going after pulling plugs and cranking the water out.

Unless you got water in the oil while it was running and it seized a bearing??
