Went to start the MG yesterday, after it was sat the day before from me washing it. (Yes, in that cold wind and horrible weather!)

It didn't. Or at least, it did, but it only fired up about 4 cylinders, and when I took my foot off the throttle, the engine died. :(

After a bit of persuasion and starting again, it duly fired up as normal, and during a near 200 mile round trip yesterday, it then didn't miss a beat the whole day, producing some grins on my face on the way... :)

Indicative of a problem, or is it possible I just got water somewhere I shouldn't have when I washed under the bonnet.
If so, any ideas what, so I can make sure it doesn't happen again?

FWIW if it fired up ok then did a 200 mile trip with no grief, them it's safe to assume water ingress!
It is always best to manually clean under a bonnet, having used some dispersant around the electrics B4. I always aviod the use of a hose. And NEVER let water get near air intakes or throttle bodies.
