So to make a long story short I hydrolocked my TJ yesterday. I removed the plugs and blew out as much water as I could. It eventually started and made it home (about 70 miles). It hesitated quite a few times on the way home, and today it does the same thing. It also idles at about 2500rpm and stalls easy. I plan on changing the oil, filter, and spark plugs, and cleaning and oiling my air filter tonight. I am worried I may have done more serious damage however, but if I threw a rod or blew anything up I think I would notice. If anybody has advice or an opinion (besides 'stay out of the water, *******') I would appreciate it. Thanks.
This is old I know but for anyone else who may do this check the compression before you sink anymore money in it. I know I know holy dead thread revival.
I don't blame people for their mistakes, but I do expect they pay for them.

If you hydrolock a motor as soon as you do it its over. The engine will just die and cease. My buddy did this he sucked in water and it made a funny noise and died. Would not start after that had to have his motor rebuilt.
