1999 Crown Vic 4.6 litre washed engine compartment spits and sputters after washing what is the problem

Washing car engines is a thing of the past. With newer emissions and ignition systems in cars and computers controlling them, you cannot let water get in the engine compartment especially with high pressure washers. You need to go wire by wire and connection by connection to see what is wet.

Hi im struggling with my polo,the spark plugs keep getting wet and car back fires,i replaced the plug wires and spark plugs,please help

If the spark plugs are getting wet with fuel the engine is flooding. You need to determine why the extra fuel is there. If the valve timing is not correct, the engine will not receive the fuel at the right time and cause a flooding condition. If the fuel pressure regulator is leaking, this will also cause the engine to be over fueled. You need to have a diagnostic scan performed to make sure the engine is over fueled and see what sensor/mechanical issue may be causing your troubles

Cant tell if i am gettong fuel to the engine

Turn it over and then remove a spark plug. But only if it is Gas (No spark plugs on Diesel engines) If the plug is wet, you are getting fuel through. While you have the plug out you could check if you are getting a spark. Rest the plug against the engine block whit the lead connected. You will need a friend for this next bit. Turn the engine over and watch the plug for a spark. If it is diesel then the problem is more difficult to check and should be checked by someone with a reasonable degree of mechanical knowledge. Hope this helps.

Washed engine now car starts but slowly loses power then cuts out daewoo nubira 2l year 2000 swagon

The ignition leads are most probably wet. the leads that go down towards and over the spark plugs. Simply pull them off blow the spark plugs and leads dry with a hairdryer or preferably compressed air.

that should sort it.

1994 camry, won't start. Engine turns over freely, good spark on new plugs, Injectors switching ( tested with light bulb) plugs wet with petrol, checked timing belt, but ok and timing marks line up?

if you have spark and fuel and it is on time it should run if the compression is high enough was this car flooded really bad if so make sure your oil is OK the do a compression check dry and wet you may find when you you do your wet test that it brings the compression up enough to git the car started that would mean that your cylinders were washed out with gas causing the compression to go down

Spark plugs change

remove the spark plug lead from the plug, blow out any dirt etc from around the plug, undo the plug and remove from the vehicle, make sure the plug has the right gap setting before installing into the engine.
Check each plug that you remove for any sign of a wet or oily plug which are signs of more serious problems.
If all the plugs are dry with just a light brown carbon deposit on them they are firing ok.
Hope this helps

My Porsche won't start. I've changed all 12 spark plugs (it has twin plug heads), and am getting plenty of fuel into the cylinders (plugs came out wet), but still can't get it to fire. It has a Haltech ECU...

Pull one plug out of one cylinder, and place the top of the spark plug on the body of the car(grounded). Start(or have someone turn the car over) and hold the plug to a grounded spot. If the plug sparks it is not an electrical problem. Also, if the plugs are coming out wet, your flooding the engine making start even harder. Also make sure the plugs are gapped to manufacturer's spec.

Our 2000 VW Cabrio wont start. We pressure washed the engine to remove excess oil from a leak & think we might hae gotten the distributor wet??? Any suggestions.

get a can of WD40 and coat everything with it... don't be that sparse with it. keep in mind oil does not conduct electricity but it will repel the water.
