    Poorly z20let

    Hey, last wednesday, I gave my car a little clean under the engine bay.

    Next day emission light came on... idled rough and would not accelerate.
    Figured it was just damp so I WD'd a few electronics and it got going OK again.

    Now everythings OK when I drive slow and boot it. but... if I moderately accelerate in 3\4\5th gear it shudders and hesistates alot?...

    Tried a new AMM off another member?... and I'm guna buy some fresh plugs to try.

    Anyone else got any idea?.... It was perfect before I cleaned under the bonnet

    I presume you have pressure washed the bay then?

    I would get a roll of paper and dry absoloutley (sp) everything I could.

    Try the plugs, leads and dispack first. If these were damp/wet they would certainly cause the car to play up.
