Default HELP!!!! I think the engines shot!

Yesterday at work the last car to come in was running rough and in need of a tune up. Well before I could pull it in to see what parts are need to be ordered today, the new guy on work study from the trade school nearby thought it would be a good idea to dump water using the hose into the engine via the air intake. When he did this I yelled at him "What the F***!!" He said he was steam cleaning the engine from the inside, it sounds like a sticky valve or ring. Now its runs (barely) worse than before how can this be fixed on the cheap and with little or no labor!!!

WTF? haha Get rid of the kid, then you will have no labor

ON a serious note I would change the oil, , new filters throughout including fuel, and new plugs and wires. Just do the basics

If this isnt a joke, kick that kid's ***!
Also, did he do it with the engine running or just while it was hot?

Didn't you know that's how you do a port and polish on the cheap

I recommend installing a Direct Exhaust Injection system to make up for the loss of power.
