Water in the engine
I went to car services yesterday and asked the guy to do a full wash. The problem is that the full wash includes the engine bay. I told the guy that while I want everything else, I do not want him to do anything to the engine bay.
I went in to the shop to do the payment and when I came back, he had already hosed down the engine bay. I was upset, but didn't take too much notice of it.
Now my engine seems to run a bit rough and sounds like it needs timing done. Since this was only noticed this morning, I can't take it back there and say you messed my engine.
Any ideas if this is a serious issue? On the phone, my mechanic mentioned that it might require the manifold to come off and perhaps one of the cylinders has water in it. I don't know about that.
After long 30 min drive, cruising on the highway, it appears that the miss is gone and the engine is fine. But I think I will take it in for a check just to be sure.
