Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hi I have a 2006 Hyundai tiburon 2.7l v6 gt. I did a stupid
thing and washed the engine.. turned the car o to drive it
somewhere and the engine light came on. Autozone said
pistons 2 and 5 were misfiring and so I took off the
manifold and sure enough, water was in the tube where the
spark plugs go. Dried it out completely before taking iut the
spark plugs and no water was on the ends. I changed the
spark plugs out, wires and the distributor (or ignition
coils..).started it up and it sounded amazing. Ran for 10
min and it shut off by itself and now it wont start again. I
then changed the cold crank sensor, fuel injectors, and
again changed the ignition coils. Engine light is not on now
but all it does now it try and start. I hear the starter but its
light its just not combusting. Also got the alternator
checked and its good along with the battery. I dont know
what else to check. I've checked all fuses too. Helppp

I dried everything out. I changed basically everything too. No fuses were blown so wouldnt that mean nothing shorted out?

This was 9 months ago. Plus I live in arizona. I've checked all my sensors, connections, fuses, harnesses. An actual mechanic with real advice said it might be a fuel pump or timing. "Cars arent made for water" stupid comment. Thanks anyways.
