You're making an assumption. He never said he washed under the hood; it was just a reasonable question on my part.

lol probably sprayed the motor down and got the dizzy wet lol

If you washed under the hood you probably sprayed water on the plug wires...Take the plug wires off the distributer and spray WD-40 on the distributer pronges. This will displace the water and should start you up. If you didnt wash under the hood disregard....
