    If you havent had the motor running very long, I would pull the plugs out and turn the crank over to check for water in the cylinders. Just turn the crank by grabbing the pulleys and belts and the water should shoot or squirt out of the plug holes. Just a thought.

    If the engine didnt bog or stall I wouldnt be concerned about the water. If you want to check to be sure, just pull the oil dipstick and see if there is any water droplets on it. Im assuming its never smoked before? If I remember correctly white smoke is oil burning. Mine does it on start-up do to bad valve seals.

    I have hydralic locked a impala before in 4 feet of water when I was younger and ever more stupid we just needed to let it sit an hour and through the air cleaner away and get a jump.
     
  5. you didn't get water in the oil. so, you have never has white smoke puff out your exhaust before on startup? or is this the first time you've noticed? 350's leak from the valve guides ( correct me guys if im mistajen there ) and will give you a puff or sometimes when they get really sloppy, like my 83 305 motor, a gout of white smoke.... did it stumble when you ran thru the water, and was then hard to start? you coulda gotten the MAF wet....

    greg, in houston where rain is for some reason an everyday occurrence now.....
