OLDSMOBILE CUTLASS ENGINE PROBLEM

1985 Oldsmobile Cutlass • 83,000 miles

I had water get in the oil for the motor in my 1985 cutlas supreme and the motor locked up. Now I was able to get it to turn over after about a year of sitting. I took the the spark plugs out and poured tranny fluid in the holes for the plugs and then with a fly wheel turner I was able to get the fly wheel turning. I put the plugs back in and tried to start it after about 3 seconds of the motor turning over it locked up again. The engine only has 83,000 miles on it but was mistreated before I bought it. What can I do to get it running again?

If you remove the plugs again, can you turn the engine? It sounds like a cylinder is filling up with coolant.
