i guess we'll just have to wait and see what the dealer says.

obviously having washed the car can not be held as a cause for an engine malfunction..


PS. are people seriously having trouble reading the original post? looks completely understandable to me and i don't see what the problem is.

I think that he is saying that he washed the engine, someone asked him in an earlier post but he hasn't responded to that yet.

OP, did you wash your engine itself?

No just a hose with no sprayer and i think thats what did it. But i've never heard of low engine power and that's what was coming on, and the stability control and check engine light.

I'm kind of curious which dealership you bought the car from...I wonder if they are still just as inept up there in the Capital District these days as they were 10 years ago when I lived in that area...from the sounds of this post, it is a resounding YES. If the check engine light came on (MIL - malfunction indication lamp?) then it threw a code (DTC - diagnostic trouble code). Ask them what code they read when they plugged the computer into the car. You don't just get a check engine light (especially if the car is only 3days old - congrats on the car, BTW), and then they say "checks out ok on the computer...". Find out what code they read, and don't let them tell you they didn't get a code.

+1

When check engine light is on, they will be able to get something. They are jerking your chain.

So you haven't told us enough to really help you, because I am quite sure I've driven a whole bunch of Camaros in the rain and I've washed them all without concern or consequence.

First, I want to know what you did to your car. Washing it in the rain with buckets of ice cold water while the hood being popped still won't hurt anything. There's more to the story and for a well educated and reliable response, you have to give more info. Not bashing you...just saying we can't work with what was given.

Please follow up and give us the code or more info.

Thanks.

Yeah, I feel something is being left out.

If I had to take a guess I would say what the code was it was probably DHMO. My dad's got an old delorian and I remember a father's day a few years back. We were washing it just fine and then BAM whole engine just died. We took it into the dealer, who was suprisingly really helpful with the whole situation actually. I digress sorry, the tech plugs it into the computer punches a few buttons and tells us that DHMO came up, didn't say what it was for. They ended up having to disassemble the engine because water had gotten into the couplings of the flux capasator and the thing was shot. Turned out that we blew the gigawatt sparkplug when we were rinsing the engine bay out. Ended up having to call up Doc and have him custom make another one for us. The thing has never been able to get past 83 mph since. Really a shame, pretty much makes the car just for looks now.

From what I've seen on this forum this is one of the most frequently washed cars I've ever seen EVER, so if washing it were a problem nobody's car would work. As for the grammar, there is a difference between being a grammar nazi and refusing to have a sentence structure of any kind. English wasn't my first language but the hell if I'm going to come to this country and talk like an idiot.

Incidentally, I've had two 2010 Camaros, one was an earlier build and one was VIN 97xxx, and I've sprayed both engine compartments as well as the undercarriage and have had no problems.
