i was cleaning my engine bay today and i tryed to cover the distributer (i know.. i probably spelled it wrong) with a plastic bag and i did except water still managed to get in it or something because i can feel it when i drive it. i have been told not to worrie because its all a matter of the water completly evaporating or whatever and then itll return to its normal performance. but just in case i need to know.. if this is true or if theres more i need to know, thanks.. i appreciate the replys.

I've done that before. You might also want to pull your plug wires from the valve cover. Water loves hiding in there. Get some shop towels and use them to soak up the water. WD40 works awesome for the distributer being wet as well. It just depends on where the water is. WD40 was designed to dispell water. That's what the 'WD' stands for. Water Dispersing, or something like that. It has something to do with water. Anyway, good luck. Good job on taking the time to clean your engine bay too. :)

ok, thats not good.. i took off my spark plug wires and i look down in the little hole and see a puddle of water in one of them. there was one other one that had little water and the other 2 had no water. so i soaked up the puddle with shop towels and some qtips. im going to let the engine bay sit in the sun for the next hour or so.. then see how it runs after that.

alright, its basically running normal now except there is still little throttle delay. but for the most part its back to the way it was. will it eventually go back to 100% like it was before ? i heard after driving it for a few days... the water should evaporate or whatever and it should be back to normal.
