I own a 99 STS w/106K miles, just yeterday i washed my engine with the Black Magic engine detailer. Now it idles unstable and shakes a little. Any ideas?

You probably filled the spark plug holes with water.
Did you use a pressure sprayer?
You can pull the plug wire boots out of the valve covers, but you'll need some compressed air and safety glasses (or something to protect your eyes) to clean them out.
Don't worry, you are not the first person to do that.

Ill give it a try and see what happens. Im guessing since it has 100K + miles i ahould go ahead and change them. Thanks allot.

Just drive it. get it nice and hot. The water will evaporate.
