Default hydrolock 01 integra gsr

Ok few days ago at night I got stuck in a flooded area and now I have
some water in my engine. I had the car towed home and the next day I
took out the spark plugs and sucked out the water from each cylinders.
The first two cylinders had some water but the last two didn't. From
someone advice from some newsgroup on the internet I sprayed some
intake cleaner fluid in each cylinder. The next day I check and there
was still some intake cleaner fluid in the cylinders. So I sucked it
out again and drained everything. I then realized that I forgot to
check the intake so when I took out the intake hose there was bunch of
water. So I drained that and used some intake cleaner to clean that
out as well. I changed out the old spark plugs and the car still
won't start. When I go to crank it, it sounds like the way the car
cranks when you have a dead battery. So I tried to get a jump and
still no luck. Any ideas before I call my insurance?

Thanks in advance

Bet your ECM is toast, as will be the rest of the electrical system. Did
the water go above the door sills in the interior?

Water didn't get in the compartment, I think due to the good seal I
have round the door but the water was up to the middle of the bumper.
Now when I turn the key all the lights on the dash come on, but just
won't crank over.

You're saying the starter turns the engine over really slowly?

Does the Check Engine light come on for two seconds when the key is first
turned to "II" then go off again?

Yes, it come on for 2 seconds and then goes off, but the SRS light on
the top right stays on for 5 seconds then goes off, not sure if that
has any value.

if it's simply hydrolock, simply remove the plugs, crank the motor, and
let everything shoot out of the plug hole. keep a fire extinguisher
handy in case of gasoline discharge. then clean and dry the plugs and
she should start. if so, then change the oil as it will probably have
water in it.

check for the other electrical problem mentioned by tegger after you've
eliminated the hydrolock condition.

Jim it won't crank over, plus I have already sucked the water out from
the motor. Far as the electrical, not sure where to start or how to
do it. When the car died, I had the vent on, and then I could smell
some air with gasoline mix, not sure if that is a hint for a blown
gasket of some sort.

/without/ the plugs? if you put the plugs back in and there's still
fluid, you'll still get lock.

seldom good enough. besides, cranking without plugs and expelling fluid
that way is highly entertaining.

so, you got hydrolock when the engine was running? that could be very
expensive! look for bent rods or a broken crank.

it might have helped diagnosis if you'd mentioned the small but
important bit about the engine running earlier...
