Welcome to just answer.com. I'm here to help you and your 100% satisfaction is my goal.Check and make sure the air intake and the air filter is clear of all water and the filter is dried out .If the engine continues to knock then you may have caused internal damage to the engine . Tell me what you find and we will test further from there .
It wont even turn over now almost like its hydra locked or something. Im just wondering if im going to have to replace the engine
Yes you may have to , first remove the spark plugs and see which cylinder has water in it
if water is sucked up the intake what are the possible enternal damages?? i will accept ur answer. thanks
Yes is very possible that you did internal damage when the water went into the engine, if that's the case is probably cheaper to replace the engine than to repair.
