The 4.6 lit motors have individual coil packs. usually, they are not very suceptable to water but... If the check engen light comes on (amber light on the dash) It's probly just skipping. Get some one to put the car in drive and hold the brake. Under load the skip will be worse. Unplug each coil one by one. As they are unpluged,the motor will shake worse. when you unplug one and the skip dosn't get worse, you have found the bad cylender. Odds are it's a coil pack but replace the plug too.

1999 4runner. My friend sprayed purple power engine degreaser on the engine and then sprayed it off with water hose. Then used the aircompresser to blow out the water. Now it wont shift out of 1st...

fire your friend, or hide car from him/her.
my guess, let it dry out, for 24 hours and pray.?

I just bought a 2003 bmw 530i and as soon as I drove home I tried to clean the engine room with running water and after cleaning I left the hood open for over 6 hours so that engine room would be totally...

6 hours would not be enough time to evaporate moisture that may have gotten into exposed wiring ports ,fuse relays or other things that were never supposed to get wet. Your best bet is to keep the hood open and let it dry out. If you have a closed garage put a heater under the engine. You could also get a can of WD40 and spray it into every opening that water had a chance of entering. WD40 is a water displacement. I just hope you didn't short out anything critical . Try starting it every 4 hours. Cars are designed to ignore water coming from the road and puddles but can be compromised by coming from the top.

Car stalls when it rains

What I would do is start the car, pop the hood, and try to resimulate your problem by spraying water places under the engine. Once the car dies, pay attention to where you were spraying and that should be where your problem is.

Going down road car hesitated thanran okay than jerked again then shut off smoke came from under hood had it tow home put water in radiator cand used starter fluid to get it started

It sounds like your timing chain jumped a tooth which puts it off time and will not start without starting fluid. The only cure is a new timing chain.

Rain water leaking from under glove box, heater area, is not antifreeqe, iam sure it is rain water

The evaporator drain might be clogged. Get under the truck or open the hood and look for a rubber nipple coming out of the firewall on the passengers side. Try sticking something in this hole to release whatever might be stuck in there, usually leaves or sediment. Be careful, don't go crazy pocking something in there. The evaporator core might be near the drain hole, you don't want to poke a hole in it.
