    Definitely not hydrolocked, but it could still be damaged. If ANY water got inside the combustion chambers it can cause massive problems. Water doesn't compress like air does.

    Get those codes pulled and we can help from there, but at this point, it's anyones guess. The loss of power when driving can be related to a lot of things, but I'm not going to rule out engine damage. I'd really look into a compression test if I were you.

    Alright ill check into that. Also when it was running, started to make a really loud screeching noise. Did this for about 5 seconds then stopped. Only seems to be doign this when its idling. After this occured, i checked the oil and its like a brown color, kinda like cofee with cream would be u know. Cant really explain what the color is like

    Like this?:


    If so, that's not good.... the screeching sound could very well be a main bearing, because your oil is now mixed with water. Don't turn the car on any more. Your engine is ****ed.

    Could be, could even be a cracked block from the extreme heat change from hot to cold by running through that puddle. Either way though, the motor has to come out. What went wrong can be determined at that point.

    Sorry man, ****ty situation.

    IF it's just a head gasket, you may get away with just replacing them and they're somewhat cheap (when compared to everything else, that is) if you do them on your own. But with the sound you said it's making and the fact that your oil looks like that, I don't think the bottom end is going to come out of this unscathed....

    I think I'd be in the same mood as him if I found out my motor was *%@*ed. At least he didn't dodge the swear filter.

    And why do I have a sudden urge to watch The Big Lebowski?
