I cant say I have ever even seen one of these, but lets start with this; Most vehicles can tolerate quite a lot of moisture (driving in heavy rain) but when it is 'flooded' with water, even garden hose pressure, that water is going to get into places it shouldn't. Your mechanic may may be going down the right path but try this first; remove spark plugs and replace if they have 50k or more miles or any are dark brown to black on the porcelain around center electrode. When you gain access to them and after turning them out about 1.5 turns, blow out water and/or dirt from around them with compressed air, this keeps it from entering plug hole. While you are using air, blow out spark plug wires/boots on both ends. As I first said, I am not familiar with this engine at all so I am not sure if you have a single coil or multiple coils. Blow out any water in any connections to these if possible. Replace boots/plug wires if they show any sign of arcing/excess wear (cracks,tears,brittle,torn) or more than 50k miles.When reassembling use a good quality dielectic silicone grease To help 'weatherproof' them.Make sure you did not damage or dislodge any other hoses/tubing/ect.. when cleaning.Hopethis helps! Please rate me. Thanks!

Check the passanger side floor board for moisture this could indicate a bad heater core. Then I would check the engine oil and make sure its not milky looking (head gasket). make sure when you fill it let it run with the cap open with you looking into the cap to be sure is circulating and not vapor locked (air pocket)
hope this helps

First be sure you are purchasing the proper replacement battery for your specific needs...batteries are not the same...kind of like cereal makers, batteries are only made by about 6 companies...(many brand names) Your local parts store should be able to offer the proper battery model to start your comparison...Use the rated "Cold Cranking Amps"...CCA for comparison. Your factory battery was probably rated at 650 CCA...you can compare amps from 650CCA to 1000CCA. Depending on your array of electrical accesories, the higher rated CCA's have more starting, and maintaining power...the warranties will range from 3-8 years as of course the higher rated CCA battery will cost slightly more. If you have not purchased the battery yet...compare the Duralast Gold battery from Auto Zone...power, warranty, and price are hard to beat...includes a 3 year free replacement, and 8 year pro-rated warranty...Also, most auto parts stores will install your battery for free:) You can watch and see the simple process of disconnecting both positive (red) and negative (black) terminal cables...then locate the battery hold down bolt...(usually 10MM deep well socket) remove and carefully lift out the old battery...some old and most new batteries have a ******** top that helps in the lifting out...and installing the new battery. Tighten down the hold-down bolt, re-connect the terminal posts...and you should be complete...the engine may run rough for a few minutes while the fuel and air mixtures are automatically re-setting to factory specs...Your parts store can confirm that your problem is the battery and not your alternator, before you invest in a battery or alternator...again for free while still installed in your car...Hope this helps.
