My 97 EL Wagon isn't starting properly sometimes. It will crank but won't turn over there is a batt symbol when im trying to start but it's brand new battery and i had it tested and the reading is fine.

Also when driving it won't shift out of 1st sometimes or get's stuck in 2nd. It will then keep up high revs and won't change. If i stomp it a bit it'll then sometimes change.

Also when idling in P or N it will rev up and down between 800-950.

This all started after i degreased the enigne bay the other day with high pressure water. I covered up the distributor with a plastic bag so no water got to it at all. I was careful where i was spraying the water as well.

Can anyone explain what is going on?

Cheers,

Simon

Id like to try and give this a go before i take it to an Auto Elect.
