You wet the inside of the distributor and water is in the spark plug boot area you can remove the boot and let the water dry out , but dont remove the sparkplug all the way unless you know the firing order a good air dry will put you back on the road,(leave the inside of the distributor alone for now)

If its been anywhere near flood / salt water then there will be corrosion of the electrical wiring , joints and components. I'm amazed it fired up at all, which shows it wasn't immersed.. Only a thorough check of the harness and connections will be needed.

I pressure washed the motor while car was running,then used an air nozzle to blow off the rest of the water around important electrical parts, then parked it and about two hours later went to star it and...


you may have cracked the distributor cap... Hot engine plus water can put a hairline crack in the cap. the crack will allow moisture to build up inside and allow the spark to jump causing the car to not crank at all in most cases.

try removing the cap and check for any moisture what so ever and then wipe clean with a clean dry cloth replace the cap and try to crank the car again... if it starts you will still need to replace the cap just because the crack will allow more moisture in every time humidity is high.

don't mix up your spark plug wires remember your firing order is 1-3-4-2

washing the engine will hot at all especially while running is never a good idea... next time wash it first thing in the morning and still don't drive it for at least 4 to 5 hours or untill all the water is compleately dried up.

Hi justin, sounds like you have a headgasket problem are you going through any water? If not you may have a leaking fuel injector or faullty fuel pressure regulator. you either have fuel or water leaking into a cylinder causing it to miss fire on first start up.

You will have dry all ignition components ... You have a distributor that you can open? Get a drying agent from your auto parts store (spray can) and spray all high voltage wires. Next sunny day, roll the Vette into the sun and leave the hood open all day.

1993 pontiac firebird automatic transmission will drive good but when I shift into reverse it will not move?


its not a sure fire fix but my 93 trans am did the same thing it had all forard driving gears and acted fine but no reverse so i with no better solution changed out the trans fluid and filter and just kept driving it but before i whent anywhere while the car was running i cycled it through the gears everytime b4 i left and about 2 weeks later i started it up and reverse was back i think it was due to a metal shaving that got lodged in one of the valve bodies a trans fluid flush is also a good idea i hope ur as lucky as i was

There are various fault code that the engine light represents. Get the computer scanned and see what exactly the problem is. It may be a miss fire, or it could also be something else. You said that you just put gas in it...double check the gas cap. Take it off and put it back on. If it is loose, that will set off an emissions code. Hope this helpls.
