Well, I washed my engine bay the other day, and I thought that I stayed away from the alt. / coil packs, etc., but apparently I got them too wet. Went to start the car, got a big tick and cut the ignition. I waited a day and went to start it, and it starts, but sounds like hell. If I just wait will it get better, or what do I have to do??

Water shouldnt affect the alternator or coil packs.

well, i got the car running tonight, and the alternator and everything seems fine, except now the lifters are ticking bad. it's gotten a little better, but under a bit of throttle its pretty bad. any ideas why this is happening??
