You might want to just suck it up an have it taken it. I have to think with water being involved here it's something maybe a pro should look at. Just my 2 cents.

MyFocus... are you listening? Drain the friggen oil!! If it turned over when you pulled the plugs, then chances are the starter is fine. And the starter worked fine before you went into the puddle. Hey!! I see your in Federal Way. If you need some help figuring it out let me know. I can buz up there and take a look at it for you tomorrow if you like (saturday the 1st of Nov. Let me know

perhaps theres some difference with these new 16v engines .. but i cant really see it.

ive flooded cars in puddles several times, and if its so bad that it wont start ive had great success simply bump starting (for a LONG time .. towing back and forth for miles), any water thats got into the cylinders will eventually be pumped out and ignition will start working again. opening and drying anything you can get at easily like the air filter seems logical :) plus anything electrical you can find, blast it with wd40 (especially plugs).

as i said .. perhaps theres some reason not to do it with these computer controlled things, but in theory this should get you running.
