If you recently cleaned the engine on a 1982 Toyota Corolla and water is now in with the spark plugs is there a way to get it out easily or should you open it up and let it air?
I would remove the distributor cap and blow it out with compressed air or at least let it dry out. The spark plug wires could be removed if they come off easily and spray a little wd40 in the ends; it helps to absorb small amounts of moisture.
I would go just under a 1/4 inch. Any more and you risk the tool being pulled into the grinder.

1992 Chevy Corsica starts fine But If you try to put the gear from park into reverse or neutral it stays in drive you cannot go into reverse What is the problem and how can you fix it the ceapest?
sounds like a transmission replacement is needed. you could always buy it from a scrap yard or online, but you most likely wont get a warranty and it may not even work once it is installed. the best route would be to just buy a new transmission, and if you have the know how, install it yourself.
You should see a mechanic for that if you get there number and tell them whats wrong you might be able to get a free check on that!
