Hmm, Never heard of that happening before, I just washed mine the other day, and washed the engine compartment too, no codes or anything. I think your problem may just be someting unique to your car.

I wonder how close your VIN numbers are....
It may be a water leak getting on some of the wiring...
It could be interestig to see if they were made around the same time..

You are going to have to get more plutonium. Then you can go back in time and not wash the car this time!

You could always try pushing it with a train. Just take off the wheels and put it on the track.

I love the BTTF references! I have always thought the Camaro looks a little like a futuristic delorean if you squint. lol

Serious note here, is the car still acting up or did they fix the problem? In which case, what was the problem? I'm just curious to know really, I've been in the situation where the dealer had my car for a week or so. Not a happy camper.

maybe i missed it in all the stupid posts but what was the check engine light on for when you brought it in?The pcm had a stored code in there,my guess is the tech couldnt figure out the fault so he cleared it and hoped for the best.The fact that you didnt even get out of the parking lot tells me you have some kind of hard failure,be sure to press those guys for facts and ask to speak with the tech not the service writer,good luck

hey guys sorry for just getting back to this. I got it back from the dealership and they toldd me it was a ground wire from the engine to body that was connected all the way. They connected it all the way extra tight and my baby is running amazing now.
