For the benefit of 944Hybrids users there are two search functions available for you to use.

When you log on to the site a list of options is shown in a line at the top of the page. One option is labelled "Search", use this option (NOT the search box lower down on the right).

After you click on the upper search option, a drop down box appears. At the bottom of this box is a radio button marked "Advanced …

Might want to put a couple of bottles of Heat in your gas tank or something that gets water out of your fuel system.

Is putting a little oil into the cylinder through the plug hole for the initial start a good idea?

Good plan...it wudden hurt at all…and I would as well (if I was doing this).

Just expect some smoke when you fire it up…and don’t worry about it.

One of my friends hydrolocked her motor. After changing the oil, draining water out of the airbox and adding several bottles of Heat in to the gas tank we pulled the plugs and turned the motor over. It was an I6 and shot water out of the plug holes all over the cars next to it, looked like a sprinkler. It started up after putting the plugs back in but had a bent rod. I hope you are more lucky.

Many of the (top end) 250,000 cars 'written off' in the Sandy flood have a 'DO NOT START' message on the windshield because even the attempt (of starting) a hydro-locked engines can bend a rod. I have seen more than one Panamera being towed out of the "Sandy" hell hole with the 'do not start' message. The salvage crews know what they are doing santa

Well if the motor is toast I have to get a new one anyway. So it doesn't really hurt to try. Also the cars your looking at probably still have water in them. Mine is bone dry.

If it was running when the water got sucked in...you are already too late...you will be trying to compress water and will bend a rod.

If the car was sitting & not running when if was flooded...then the piston rods are safe from being bent. As long as you 'do not start' it…it can be easily disassembled, carefully cleaned and rebuilt.

The motor did suck in water a few months ago while it was running and then i let it dry out for 5 months. I figured I would try it out and see if a rod is bent and it is. Tried it out last night and its knock, knock, knockin on heavens door. Forged LS2 pushed out to a 402 is the plan.

Well, I'm kinda redoing the entire car at this point. Complete with every Elephant Racing and Racers Edge bushing, Moton Club Sports, Bruce's torsion carrier, GT3 calipers, etc. So after I rebuild the suspension and get that all fixed up and perfect, that's when I will decide on exactly how I'm going to do the motor. And how much money I can spend on it. But my feeling on its that this thing was a monster with 450 HP. How much more do I really need? I couldn't get the 335's to stick as it was... Lol

Just so everyone knows, I'm doing Mortgage loans in Illinois, Colorado, and California now in order to fund this bad boy! LOL

Did I screw this up? Or does that just pop back in there? The good news is that the motor is on the ground without incident.

I would get a new one for peace of mind. If you do get a real GM slave, the first one I had was a cheap off brand unit. It was leaking with in 200 miles.

You could try to fashion it back together but I'd get a genuine GM slave. It would suck to have to pull the engine, just after getting it going, due to the slave going wrong.

Sounds good... let me know. I actually haven't looked at it since I dropped the motor, so I may pull it and get it checked out. It only has about a thousand miles on it because I just had it replaced...
