Moisture by itself won't affect the sound of the engine. If you happened to spray water on the engine where it contacted the exhaust system, you may have a crack in the exhaust that needs to be attended to. If you did not wash the engine off, it may just be a coincidence that this happened after the wash job. Listen under the hood and on both sides of the car to see if you can find an exhaust leak.

Engine will start but will not stay at idle after rconecting battery


The Engine and Automatic Transmission (not applicable to manual transmissions) in this vehicles drive train are fully electronically controlled by a computer called the PCM and TCM (Power Train Control Module, Transmission Control Module). When a problem like this or other drive-ability related problems occurs the computer stores a record of the problem (there are of course some exceptions to this, like the fuel pump, engine coolant temperature sensor and MAF sensor for instance) in the form of a fault code in its memory, to read these fault codes you must have the systems memory scanned with a special tool. Once the fault code(s) are read you then must perform the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and resolve the problem(s) DO NOT REPLACE ANY PARTS UNTIL A TRAINED TECHNICAIN HAS DIAGNOSED THE PROBLEM TO AVOID SPENDING YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY ON PARTS THAT MAY NOT CORRECT THE PROBLEM. Also always check fuel pressure for correct spec for your make and engine type.

How to adjust the idle in 1992 toyota camry

sounds like you got water in the throttle position sensor.
that will mess it up.
look on the intake where the throttle cable is connected and on the other end of the intake is the throttle position sensor is located.
if you get water in them they short out and don't work very good anymore.
time for a new one.
if your check engine lite is on then it is most likely the problem

2003 toyota camry won't start. Had battery tested, and still good. has power but won't even crank.

Could be the starter motor, bad battery connection, starter motor solenoid, faulty ignition switch, siezed up engine.
Turn the head lights on and try to crank the engine, if you hear a click and the lights dim, it is a bad battery or a loose battery lead. If you hear a click and lights don't dim, bad starter. If you don't hear a click, it is the starter solenoid. If nothing at all, bad ignition switch.

Car dose not go thow all the gears

For some toyotas (I own a 1994 4-runner) there is an emissions-control feature that disables Overdrive until the engine is up to full temperature.
In my case, it would get into overdrive, but it took a very long time to get there, especially in winter. Turns out that the thermostat was stuck open, so the engine was running very cold. About $150 got me a new thermostat and now it's all better.

Hope that helps!
