Hey, I'm Jessie I own a 2000 model Volvo s80 tonight it hydroplaned into a ditch and the whole front was under water. We pulled it out and it still runs, could the heads be cracked if it still runs

If it still runs fine, I doubt it. BUT I'd change the oil twice right away. I'm sure you got water in the crankcase. Change the oil, run it for 30 minutes, then change it again. Replace the oil filter both times as well. HTH. -Jim
