Good evening. How deep was the water in this case? Is the engine trying to turn over?

It was pretty deep and engine is trying to turn over it makes a click when I push the push to start
Expert:  Joshua Davenport replied 1 year ago.

Ok. Couple of different things could have happened in this situation. It is possible that the water shorted the starter itself so it does not have the power to turn the engine over. In this case the starter would need to be replaced and the electrical system would need to be checked. Another possibility is the engine could have sucked the water through the air filter. In this case water could have made its way into the cylinders in the engine. The water would need to be drained and the engine checked for internal damage. Since the water will not combust, it can cause internal engine parts to bend.
