you could of bent a push rod.


you need to see if you can turn the motor over. the best way is to remove all the spark plugs because this frees up the compression, then with a socket on the crand, see if it turns. it not it could meann the motor has something internal wrong. If so your insurance will cover it since it was an accident with the water.


I would call your insurance company. my buddy did the same thing and bent a push rod, the insurance company wrote it off and gave him a check for the amount the car was worth.
