Drain all that back out and put new plugs and oil in the engine and try to start it.... Keep changing the oil will you have no water in the oil.... then fog the engine a few times after you have it running...

Hope this helps, and God Bless

Sounds like you are from the east coast


Jay, Wow. That would be very hard to deal with. Something good will come from this, remember, "Everything is ok in the end. If things arent ok, than it is not the end"

Damn Jay... That looks like what happened here in SO FLA during Andrew in 92. Hang in there bud it will get better. People in these situations tend to come together and help out. I remember after Andrew parts of Miami were destroyed which was very sad but the way that people came together and helped each other out, I will never forget. Everyone put their differences aside and helped out. If there is anything we can do for you just give me a shout...

Jay, so glad you made it through that alive. I live up in Canada and I've been blessed to have not had to face a hurricane, tornado, wild fire or any other naturaly disaster. The TV coverage simply can't do justice to the total devastation you are faced with. Thank you for taking the time to write such a well written account of what you lived through. I find myself typing as the tears roll down my cheek for you and everyone else that has been affected by Charlie. It is apparent that your OSO brothers and sisters are stepping up to lend a hand. Hang in there man, you'll only come through this stronger than before. I know I'm a lot of miles away, but if there is anything I can do, just send me a PM. James
