Grand Cherokee Hemi hydro locked

I own a 2005 Jeep GrandCherokee with the 5.7L Hemi v8. I few days ago I went through some deep water, possibly 2 feet or more. The engine stalled mid way in the water. I had to get towed out of the water and back to my buddy's house. The jeep threw 3 codes with Obd2 scanner: P0700, P0888 and P0562. The next day it wouldn't crank. So my buddy and I hooked up battery cables to give it a jump (Bad idea) I should have left it alone and taken it to a shop. It ended up cranking over started rattling and spit milky brown color (water/oil) out of the back passenger side of the engine (assuming right by the passenger exhaust manifold) the oil dipstick is completely dry.

Any ideas? I need to know of a good but inexpensive mechanic. I just hope my engine isn't completely blown. I live is the westminster/co broomfield area.

MILES.

Sounds like you put a rod through the block. If so, you will need more than an inexpensive mechanic.

You better start sourcing a new motor - and a mechanic that can swap it in.

Not yet I have not seen it since Thursday. I am trying to find a good yet semi inexpensive mechanic to look at it. Can any of you guys recommend one... Around Westminster/Broomfield area?

Yep. Sounds like a gonner to me.

Pull the spark plugs. Turn it over by hand with a wrench if possible. If it makes it two full rounds, then you can use the battery and do a compression test on each cylinder. Inspect the outside of the engine underneath and both sides using a flashlight and a lot of scrutiny. Drain the oil and see what you get....

Good luck.

Yikes, like others have said, sound like you blew a hole in your motor by trying to turn it over.

Begin the search, local junkyards etc for a motor.

Take a flashlight and see if you can find the hole in your engine that shouldn't be there, lol
