The throttle body was sprayed without the engine running

Customer Question

The throttle body was sprayed without the engine running. I tried yo start the engine by turning it over, but it did not try to start. I need to know what else to do.

That can cause a few problems but usually the best way is to just hold your foot hard down on the throttle and crank the car over as if it was an old carby model and flooded. This puts a whole heap of fresh air through the system and it should fire. As soon as it starts back off the throttle.
