HOW CAN I GET CAR STARTED IF IN FLOOD?

2003 Pontiac Grand Am • 158,000 miles

Hello I had no choice but to drive my car threw a flash flood lastnight. It cut off on me its a 2003 Grand am se V6. Any ideas of getting my baby back on the road?I tried a jumpstart last night after we pushed it out the water. It was submerged for less than a min but my friend did try to crank it while submerged once. Can u tell me what to do please?

Remove the plugs and crank the water out. Change the oil and filter before starting it. Cross your fingers and hope you did not bend any connecting rods.

Once theplugs are out, crank the motor to spray out the water. Add a little oil into the cylinders for compression re install the plugs, hook everything back up, change the oil and filter and try and start it.
