I have a 94 comaro. I washed the engine off at the car wash and now it's not running right. It's not shifting right and idling between 2500-3000 rpms. What should I do?

You got the plugs and wires wet and its misfiring. See if you can get an air hose with a air gun tip and blow the engine dry. Is the check engine/service engine soon light on?

No it is not. It doesn't want to shift out either. It is a for speed auto matic. If u rev it up real high when driving it will finally shift.


Check the transmission fluid level.
