When you say it got wet, how wet? Drove through a deep puddle wet or washed the engine off wet?

Best Answer

Washed engine lightly. Also happens driving in the rain. That's why we replaced opti spark


If the opti spark got wet it may have moisture inside of it causing it to fail again. Too make sure i have the order right, you replace the opti spark, the motor got wet, now it wont start. Is that correct?


Originally when we replaced opti spark and then started car it ran at a high idle. Then the next day it idled fine. Once motor got wet it messed up. And started fouling plugs.


I would exchange your opti spark for a new one. From what i am reading, they are not well sealed.
