car runs horrible after engine detail

Ok so I decided to clean my discusting engine bay as its probably never been done...
I used a pressure washer for the shock towers, firewall and any other body colour parts under my my hood. When I was all done and after the car sat for about a hour I went to leave where I was and the car ran fine.
About ten munits Into my drive it started acting up. Kinda like a missfire at all rpm and has f all for power. Sounds like a subaru now...any ideas?????

Sounds like you got your ignition system components all wet. It happens.

Could be a sign your wires, dizzy cap & rotor are on their way out. If they're old, might be time for a tune up.
