Icon5 Water In spark plug

Okay so I read the previous talk on this subject. This is what happened I took my car to degrease the engine. Sure enough when I was done one plug was not sparking I thought that night oh, something is wet!! I turned on the car the next morning and opened the Honda cover and noticed one of the wire was unplugged (I dont know why if before the engine would not jump spark) and that was my spot I plugged it in not thinking of the water being in there (stupid choice).So its stop jumping a spark and the engine sounded fine.I then heard the engine run fine so I went to unplug another one to make sure no water was in them when i disconnected the next one the car shut down like 30 seconds after but not instantly. So I plugged it in (after car died) that back in and checke the one that was wet(unplugged) I pulled out the plug completely and noticed it was flooded in water. I dried it out with a cloth and then took off the spark plug and dried it out. I put it back in and nothing it still cranked though. I then took off all the spark plugs blew them with a compressor and nothing.I replaced all spark plugs(NGK ) and thought maybe cus of the water as a conducter it could have shot all plugs but nothing. Engine cranks but still Nada. So at this point I am thinking maybe I shot the distrbutor is that a possibility? Please If i am not clear let me know.

Re: Water In spark plug

did u check the coil?
take the coil out and take it to auto zone or somewhere where they test it for free
if that dosent fix it, try the distributor module, its the thing that has wires sticking out when u take the cap off
maybe some 1 els could correct me if im wrong?

Re: Water In spark plug

Welcome to the pz .make sure you check the oil for signs of water ,the coil is the black device that has one plug on the bottom and has a spark plug on the top and it's connected to distributor among the other spark wires ,and the ignition module is inside the distributor and has three wires connected to it and it has a square shape . That it for know but before you go there you need to make sure the coil is good and the spark is coming out of it , also the timing must be dead on point , and check fuses and the main relay under the dash but that is iffy any way hope this help since your new let me know hit me up for trouble shooting and i will walk you threw it .Later J

OMG!!!!


Welcome to PZ....
You should download the manual for your car before attempting ANY work on it.
Ironically it gives you trouble shooting steps and identifies parts of each system in a car... even gives you the locations.... crazy right?

People that DON't know what a coil is/looks like should NOT be working on their car's... just sayin....
