    Remove all spark plugs and crank engine over several times.... That should do it.

    That works for me every time!!! Unless there is still a leak and coolant has been added.... Did you install a NEW intake as well?? ... Engine hasn't started since the work?

    remove wet air filter, throttle body inlet boot/tube and spark plugs and slowly by hand with socket and large ratchet or breaker bar, then after rotated at least twice by hand, crank engine for about 30 second with spark plugs out until no water seen coming out spark plug holes. If you did not run through water then you must diagnose and repair source of water such leaking intake, intake or head gasket. If you need help diagnosing and repairing and would like a FREE LOANER car, van or SUV please call Roy or David at 757-456-0722
