Unhappy motor locked up?? wtf!

my wife on her way to work drove through high water on harbor side this mourning, sucked water into the intake and stalled it. I know waters in it as the plugs were wet. My question is, with the plugs removed, I should be able to roll the engine by turning the crank with wrench right? It's turns maybe 1/4 turn either way then stops. I rolled it one way til it stopped, turned the key and heard the starter click. Then rolled it the other way and turned the key and the motor turned that 1/4 turn then came to an abrupt halt (spit a little water from one of the cylinders ). I'm almost sure something is fukt inside just want to hear it from someone who has dealt with this before.

It's a 06 pontiac g6 gp if it matters.

Hydrolock sucks. Did you change the oil? Sounds like you have a milkshake there...

Oh there's probably stuff wrong in there...
When water gets in an engine things start bending and breaking. Is there water in the oil? The crankcase may have a bunch of water in it.
If so, drain it and see if it turns over. If it doesn't turn over after the oil is out, then that would be bad. If it does then put fresh il in and see what happens.

Yes if you took out all spark plugs you should be able to turn it over by hand like you are doing. If it sucks in water it can bend the connecting rods because liquids do not compress and it is trying to compress water on the compression stroke. Bends rods, can crack heads and can crack blocks. It sounds like possible bent rods.
Sorry to hear this, hope it turns out something easy.

If it sucked in a lot of water it probably stopped due to hydraulic lock in one or more cylinders. With all of the plugs removed it should push the water out and be able to rotate unless something got damaged as the engine locked.

when you try and compress water, you bend rods, if it turns each way but stops short, its a certain thing the motor is screwed via bent rods

yup. insurance companies also tend to total vehicles that have been submerged because of a host of other problems it causes

I thought so. Yea with all plugs removed I can get an easy 1/4 without much resistant then sudden Stop. Thanks to everyone this what I expected but need to hear it from a few others. There may be water in the oil but that's the least of my worries.

Not to threadjack, but would this be covered under comprehension insurance as weather damage?

Most likely not. As the driver, your supposed to be responsible, and not drive through water. I'm just assuming thats the sort of excuse they would use. Weather damage is such a shoot depending on your ins company.

Sorry about your engine man. I sunk a jeep once, and remember the work it took to rebuild it. I don't envy you.

I've learned the hard way with insurance companies, honesty is never the best policy
