The first step to getting any question answered on this forum is to go to the "Introduce Yourself" section and use it.
If the check engine light is on and the only reason is because of water in the distributor, no doubt causing a random multiple misfire DTC P0300, it will reset itself after three consecutive drive cycles without any further discrepency. However the possibility exists that there is a different problem such as knocking off a vacuum hose or something of that nature. If the MIL doesn't reset in a few days you need to have the vehicle scanned and diagnosed by a competent technician.
