    If there is water in the two cylinders you have a blown head gasket and it needs to be repaired by a repair shop, Don't try and start the engine as if it starts and the affected cylinders have too much water or coolant in them you will bend a connecting rod or break a piston because water will not compress like a fuel air mixture.
