Just have to get it dried out. You could help it if you had compressed air to blow out electrical components & plugins.

What about that cylinder that sounds like theres no compression?

I remember you, how are you doing on that truck? So on the cylinder just check the compression. Or that coil may have gotten wet, blow out the electrical connection and the coil.

Your starter motor probably got wet also, should dry that out too.

Good morning sinless... I guess I should ask, how much water did this go threw? Was it over the top of the engine? And what did your scan show? You could have more problems getting this to go depending on how wet this thing got. As it is sounds like you need to go threw everything and get it dried out. Another thing is the 2.4L has a timing chain, so not much worries there but the 3.0L has a timing belt. Luckily the 3.0L and 3.2L are non-interference engines. So you would want to do a compression test to see if maybe the timing belt had jumped if it were any of these two engines. Compression would show low.

Mone sounds like the starter is not engaging, any ideas?

Jkerd, sounds like a bad starter drive, starter would need to be replaced.
