Stalled, I managed to fix it, possible engine damage?
I turned the car off at a gas station and it wouldn't turn back on.
This happened before, so I unplugged all the plugs that connect to the spark plugs (the numbered things on the side of the engine, not sure what they're called exactly) and put them back on. I ended up messing up and putting 2 on the wrong cylinder, and when I got the car on, the engine light was blinking and it had a slight vibration. I didn't leave it running.
This morning, I figured out what I might have messed up and I went out, opened it up and put the two plugs back on the right cylinder and started it up, it drove fine, i took it to auto zone to get the check engine code.
Like I expected, i got a code for multiple misfires from when I put the plugs back on wrong. The engine light isn't on now, but could turning the car on for a short amount of time with it misfiring have damaged anything?
I didn't drive it, just started it. Once the light was blinking I left it off. The code was cleared and the light isn't on anymore, but I just want to know if I might have damaged anything. I drove a lot today and it seems to be okay, but I don't know how to tell if a connecting rod bent or anything
Don't know why it wouldn't start either; That might be irrelevant. It wouldn't do anything when I turned the key, the accessories would come on but the engine would only click once. It'* happened once before, and messing with the plugs seemed to fix it, so this time it fixed it too I just accidentally put the cord on the wrong plug.
