Stupid newbie trick of the week... Got my 1989 YJ Sahara this week. Today I work on it and have this wise idea to power wash the engine.
Now I cannot get her to start no way no how.
I left the hood open all afternoon in hopes it would dry. Unfortunately it was overcast and humid. Also took distributor caps off and let them air dry. Still no luck.
What steps would you take to dry things out?
And what if any precautions should I take to keep from frying the starter?
Can I do any other damage by turning it over a lot?
Morale of the story... Don't give your jeep a bath with the hood open! And don't neglect to take shop classes in HS.
