    If this vehicle was submerged in deep water, it may need a LOT more than an engine! All electronic componets for one example. These vehicles are usually considered a TOTAL LOSS.
    Good luck with it.

    You will never get it back to where it is a dependable ride, no matter how much you do until you have spent enough to have bought a running and ready to go vehicle! You will eventually agree.
