Startup Problem After Washing

2487 Views 9 Replies 7 Participants Last post by  DCNewbie
In 1800 miles, haven't had a single startup problem -- until today. I pushed the start button and it went "chugachugachuga" over an over but wouldn't start. I eventually got it going by giving it a little gas with the throttle. The only thing that has happened since the last time I started it was washing it (a couple of days ago). Could that have anything to do with it or do I have a bigger issue that needs dealer attention?

Can't see how water could have gotten into the tank. And, no high pressure. Just sponged it with soapy water and toweled it off. I'm thinking that there isn't any connection with the washing at all.
Update. Couple of weeks later and no more start up issues. Guess I will go with the "water on the plugs" answer and not worry about it. Thanks for the help.
