remove the glow plug or injector and slowly turn the motor over and pump the fuel out the hole.

probably want to change your oil too just to be safe.

This should work.....I agree. Had to do the same when I drown a humvee once. Never ran the same afterwards though. However, this case may be different since it sounds like the engine was not under load when it happened.

Take care,

yeah, you probably bent a rod on that Hummer. everything SHOULD be fine on the powerstroke once you get that diesel out of there.

If you have been running those power strokes on extended oil change intervals ie 5-10k+, the oil break's down and carbon build up begins to occur, and clogs the tips of the injectors. Flush the engine with an engine flush, to cut the carbon build up in the motor and see if that doesn't fix your injector problem before you go drop change on those exspensive injectors.
