Question about 1995 Mitsubishi Eclipse
First of all you never spray a electrical component with water. Now there is no way to know what sensor shorted or whether or not it shorted out the computer also. What you need now is a data scanner in order to see if any codes were set and to see what data is skewed or missing alltogether. As far as why the hormonic balancer fell aprt I would suspect something stopped the belt from turning and the seperator rubber on the balancer gave out,, or it just failed for no reason which does happen.
As far as overheating its possible you have a head gasket issue.
Hopefully it was just the cap but what came first. The chicken or the egg.
Did it overheat then blow the cap or did the cap release water and then it over heated. This is important in diagnosing a overheat issue. You could do a leak down compression test to see if you have a head gasket issue if you have the tool.
Either way your going to have to deal with the no start issue first and without a data scanner there is amost no way to tell whats going on without guessing. You could test each sensor individually if you know how.
If you want to diagnose this go to mitchell1diy online and pay the ten bucks. It will give you everything you need except the tools.

This is a pretty common occurence when someone washes there engine. Most of the time the problem is the ignition/ start relay that has got condensation in it and needs to be replaced. This is a easy fix and the part is not to expensive. You can test it with a volt meter. If the relay checks out just fine then you will need to go to your ECU and replace that which is a bigger expense and will cost more money yet you are able to still do it yourself. Another piece of advise, if you are going to try and wash your engine it is highly recommended that you take it to a professional and let them do it. I know that it cost some money, but it will save you from having these problems in the long run.
