Subaru rolling over, but won't fire

I have a 2002 Subaru Legacy Outback. It had been running fine. I came home from work in a snow storm which had dumped 10-12 inches, and basically my car was plowing snow. My car was so packed with snow and ice from the storm that I went to the car wash to get rid of all the build up. I changed the spark plugs and put new wires on, but it still won't fire. I thought maybe I have gotten bad gas, or not sure if it's connected to the car wash? I really need to get this running again, I can't afford to drive my pickup back and forth to work. Any ideas?

The mistake is washing the engine bay
water gets into every electronic connections and shorts out everything
use compressed air in all of the harness connections and use dewatering fluid ( wd-40 or the like )to remove the water

SOURCE: 91 LEGACY STARTED RUNNING ROUGH

The cylinders are numbered as on the spark pack you changed. You might have done better putting the seafoam in the tank as an injector cleaner. Not sure why you changed so many parts, you seem to know how to get the codes from test connector lead hookup and the blink pattern. You might also want to check the fuel rail pressure and the crank and cam angle sensors. Before replacing the injector, swap the #4 injector with the adjacent one and see it the code moves with the injector or stays put. If the code stays on #4, then check the injector wiring, if it moves clean or replace the injector.

SOURCE: Not as easy to change as any of my other cars. Do I have to remove the motor mount?

Not easy without proper plug wrench. If not available then I use a plug socket and 1 " extension. Reach them in first onto the plug, then put ratchet on. When I re install I use a small piece of hose that the plug sets in to start the treads. The hose won't allow you to get enough torque to strip the threads but will start. Good luck and try to have paitience.

SOURCE: 99 subaru legacy outback w/2.5 L boxer engine.

This code is associated with the EVAP system which includes, but not limited to gas cap, fuel lines, carbon canister, purge valves. The EVAP system is supposed to prevent fuel vapors from escaping the fuel system

If you have this code, one of the following may have happened:
Gas cap not installed properly or faulty gas cap
Purge solenoid has failed
Canister is plugged and not working properly

This code can be tricky to resolve, but try some of these:
Remove and reinstall the gas cap and or replace the gas cap and clear the code and see if it comes back
Inspect the the hoses, and tubes for any sign of a hole or cut
Inspect for damage or disconnected hoses around the purge solenoid
Check and or replace the sensor
Check and or replace the purge valve
