When the Engine Meets a lot of Water

Is it bad for the engine or radiator to be engulfed in water when passing through a stream that covers the clutch and brake pedals? Where would you have to specifically clean to get the guck that get's stuck. Why would you need a snorkal? (I understand that the engine needs to breath so it keeps turning but not sure where or why or how). Just that spring is going to be here soon and I wanted to test out my jeep

should be fine, just as long as your intake doesnt go under, if you get a snorkel, which raises your intake to over your hood. after going through deep water, clean out your diff, change oil, tranny fluid, and x case

Yeah, water is non-compressable....trying letting your engine down a few gulps of it and see all the fun twisty shapes your connecting rods make
