Icon9 PLEASE HELP ASAP STUPID SOCAL WEATHER KILLED MY LUDE

ok so all this rain plus the ghetto ass city I work in caused major flooding everywhere, I. Tried to go through this mini river and my idiot self triied hitting gass last second when I my car was bogging out which didnt help, it just did alot of damage.

Right now im draining the oil completely and yes its super milky like alot of water got in there, so far i am changing the spark plugs and swapping out the filter.

Other than jus draining the oil and doing what I'm doing, anyone else have any advice? Right now I'm planning on getting the big bottle of lucas cleaner n pouring it in before the new oil.

Is my engine doomed? Or can I save it?

That sucks man, the same thing happened to me and I'm not going to lie I almost cried like a bitch. But I realized its not so bad and I can fix this. All you got to do is take out your spark plugs and turn your motor over until all the water is out of your cylinders.

Then I changed my oil about 4 or 5 times just to make sure all the water was out. I also added seafoam in between changes and then left it in the last oil. Then i changed the oil again about 500 miles later. As long as you didn't wind up bending a rod everythings going to be ok.
