good day fellas, new to the peugeot brand, normally a honda owner but recently bought a peugeot 307 for d wifey, due to gettin it at a good price in good condition in a company auction. car was working perfectly and quite frankly was impressed with the features and style of the peugeot. however yesterday i decided to give d engine a wash as it seemed to never hv seen water in years.... i used a drippin hose and some soap, no pressure washer or neting, however after finishing and tryin to start the engine is only tumbling and not starting, i am confused as to what may be causing this....normally with the civic i wash n then she starts in one tumble, but not so with the peugeot.

any ideas/ suggestions? any help would be greatly appreciated

you don't engine wash euros..you get them detailed.
water may have gotten into an electrical component. Please tell me it isnt a 307 hatch back.
