So i was mudding yesterday and there was a small creek bed that i thought i would be able to make it though, so after an attempt my front tires sunk down and that led to part of the motor being under water. The truck was running while entered in the water. Once got pulled out the truck won't start and it sounds like the motor is seized or the battery is dead but i have good battery level. So my next thought is that maybe water had gotten into the cylinders. I was just seeing from some of you guys what you think it might be. :help:

Pull the plugs and see if the the motor will turn over. Clean the spark plug holes out good first so nothing falls in to the combustion chamber. maybe force some water out.

Sounds like you've hydrolocked it. Hopefully, you haven't bent a connecting rod. Remove all spark plugs & turn the engine over until all the water stops coming out.
