I have a 2001 corolla
. After hosing down the engine
one time, It started not working with full force. I found out that water had gotten into one of the spark plug
wholes. I pushed it out with air compressor. The car sat for a long time and if there was any water remaning it would have dried. Not to mention I turned the car on alot. Still had similar issue. The car actually turned off and the engine shook alot and you could even feel it inside. I changed the spark plugs, reset the battery and after a day, the engine light came back and the movement and turning off did not really improve. I took it to a friend mechanic and he changed the throttle body. This fixed the turning off problem. It doesn't turn off anymore. But still after resetting the battery for testing, after just alittle bit, the check engine was back and same issue. You could always feel like it was going to happen. Sometimes you could manipulate it by changing it from gears but once the engine started to move like crazy, same issue and you couldn't really drive it as it had little power. Specially uphill. So we changed all 4 sprak plug connectors (black ones) same thing. I spent way too much money on this. Any suggestions? I just want to sell it but I can't like this.
