i washed the engine of my 96 plymouth voyager and now doesnt star up

yea, clean engines have a cost sometimes...we motorheads have all done that, the most obvious thing to do is remove the distributor cap and dry out the inside, it is probably soaked-an air hose comes in handy for this too, but you might not have access to one, so use paper towels to blot out moisture. If it sits overnight, it should be ok, try to resist running your battery down trying to start it. It will dry out eventually, but it is most probably moisture in the distributor cap.

my camera got wet i tried to dry it out with blowdrier it still wont work

First of all, you never want to try to dry out an electronic device with a blow dryer. Hopefully you did not apply enough heat to damage any of the sensitive parts. You also never want to try to turn on an electronic device that has gotten wet. You should remove the battery immediately and dry off any water on the exterior of the device. Place the device in a bowl of rice for 24-48 hours. Many times this will pull out the moisture. I dropped my cell phone in the pool last week and it certainly saved me. You can also use Damp Rid or Silica gel if you happen to have them.
