If there is excess oil in the cylinder, it will create a lot of smoke until it is cleared.
Might dirty up the plugs as well, but a good run should tidy that up to.

One way to check if there is too much water in the cylinder is to put the plugs back in and crank the engine by hand. If there is no undue resistance, it should not hydro lock and the engine running should eject it pretty quickly. This is how they check for hydro locking in aircraft radial engines.
If you're turning the engine by hand, you won't break anything unless you're the hulk having a tanty.

Not recommended practice either to wash your engine. The sensors and electrical connections on modern engines can cause no end of grief if they get water in them.
This is resolved, why did you bother to reply with nonsense?

In case someone else was interested.
So stick it up your own rear end if you want to be an arsehole.
Cool it guys. As I found, water from the cylinders can be easily sucked out with a 1/4 inch tube attached to a vacuum and then one can verify there is no water with a $10 boroscope :)
