Re: Service Done - Car Miss Sign In

The key here is you washed the engine. NOT! Might be early but may have just wet the wrong things or worse sucked in some water thru intake depending on what you did. If time just let it dry out but look for water in any air intake parts. If already all dry it might have cracked something or anything carrying high voltage to spark plug or including spark plug porcelain.

If it sucked it into engine all bets off as to extent of damage so far. You may have "washed" engine before or many times without incident but this could have cost you a freaking fortune! The dirt was harmless but it's done now so let's find what went wrong.

"Blocked inside engine?" I'm not sure what to make of that. A misfire or real damage just yet. See if oil is too full or mixed with water now if that bad after a run of any time would be a horror show,

Never, ever wash an engine in today's vehicles. There are hundreds of electronic modules for you to ruin.

It doesn't work too well under water, does it

Is the check engine light on???? If so have the codes pulled, you may find a P030X code.

Did you talk to the shop that did the service yet? If not give them a call and tell them what you posted here......
