WITH 109,500 MILES
ITS THE OL 4.6 LITRE NORTHSTAR ENGINE

I RAN IT THROUGH SOME HIGH WATER ON RAINY DAY

WHEN EVER I START THE ENGINE IT RUMBLES AND RATTLES VERY HEAVILY
THE WHOLE ENGINE SHAKES AND THEN THE GAUGES READ"OIL PRESSURE LOW" stop engine!
THEN THE CAR CUTS OFF
SO I DRAINED THE OIL AND RUSTY CHOCOLATE MILK SORT OF OIL CAME OUT.
I REPLACED IT WITH NEW OIL, HOPING FOR THE CAR TO CRANK NORMALLY BUT IT DID NOT
I DONT KNOW WHAT TO DO

MANY MECH. SAY REBUILD THE ENIGNE BECAUSE THE CRANK SHAFT OR BEARINGS OF SOME SORT are DAMAGED.

WHEN I DID START IT AFTER I PLUNGED THROUGH 2 FEET OF WATER. THE CAR RAN FOR ABOUT 205 FEET UNTILL IT STARTED STALLING
SO WHEN I STARTED IT AFTER THAT AND GAVE IT GAS. WHITE SMOKE CAME OUT THE TAIL PIPE.N I MEAN ALOT!

so WHAT CAN I POSSIBLE DO?

NEW ENGINE?
REBUILD IT?/
THE ENGINE STILL CRANKS IT, IS THERE ANY HOPE?

PLEASE HELP ME OUT
WHAT CAN I POSSIBLY DO NOW?
