Remove spark plugs to see if there is coolant or something causing a hydrostatic lock.

What would I have to fix if it is hydro locked?

You would need to determine where the coolant is entering the cylinders. Check to see if that is the problem. Remove the plugs and see if the engine will turn over. If it is a hydrostatic issue, the coolant will come out with the plugs removed. If that is the case, most likely it is a bad head gasket.

Hey im sorry I didnt respond a while ago but ive been really busy with school. I pulled the spark plugs and turned the engine over and pushed coolant out of cylinder #1. Is there anyway to tell if it is the intake or head gasket I have to replace?

I would recommend replacing the gaskets. Make sure the parts are straight and not cracked.

Let me know if you have other questions or help with anything
