This is correct. If your car were hydrolocked, it would not be going anywhere

yeah you would be either pulling your hair fixing it and pray that its ok or paying out of your ass for a new motor or a re-built one.

when you got hydrolocked, you can't even start the ignition. i got hydrolocked once when my 00 GTS was submerged about a wheel high during a big flood here.

don't worry bro. you'll be right

you'll want to do a compression test to be safe. also wouldnt hurt to pull off your throttle body and Intake manifold and clean em up real good.
