Washed the engine and my toyota corolla will turn over but will not start, what is wrong with it?

Also using a water displacement will help such as a slight spray of WD-40 lubricant. This learned while working at a car wash doing detailing cars and cleaning hundreds of engines!

No, the problems which appear after washing the engine are usually temporary. They dissapear when the washing agent or water dry off. You can help your engine regain its funcionality by drying spark plug contacts, and Ignition module contacts.

Sounds like you created a potential short when you washed the engine. one of your sensors may be tempoarily shorted. I would wait for the water to dry out and see if the problem is still there. if the check engine light came on you could have the codes pulled by autozone or advance autoparts

What is the Proper Way to DEGREASE my ENGINE @ Car Wash Degreaser

You should not have any problem if you don't concentrate on the electrical components. What i mean is stay away from them as much as possible, and don't use alot of pressure wear you can blow things off. Myself i do it at home with a can of degreaser and a garden hose, If you do it at a car wash take a can of WD40 with you incase it stalls or wont start after you do it,WD40 displaces moisture, you would be better off doing it in your own driveway if your aloud too. You can wash any part you want. watch your paint on car, some of that degreaser can take off paint.

Washed the engine now it wont start

Most likely you will just have to wait for it to dry on its own. It is best to wash a engine while it is running so the ignition components stay dry.
