If water gets in the combustion chamber, you could hydro-lock the engine. The pistons were designed to compress a somewhat gaseous fuel mixture. Coolant is a liquid; not a gaseous mixture. This puts undue pressure further down and can bend the connecting rods.

I know $$$ do not grow on trees, but the $$$ you'll need to fix the car will be much >>> if you keep driving it.

My 2 cents..
