Answer 2
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.
