S14: No spark

Okay I desperately need help right now. Here's the skinny: got oil all over my engine bay, so I went to a local place, doused the motor in degreaser once the motor was cool enough not to boil it off instantly, rinsed the motor, and now she won't start. I didn't get up on it with the pressure, just rinsed it off. I'm getting no spark. Its an s14. No water under the distributor cap, what the hell did I do? Any suggestions for me to try when I go back to the car tomorrow?

I don't have a spare distributor to try.

This is the first time I've ever had anything like this happen after washing my motor. Never once had a problem.

I finally get some of the body straightened and work out some kinks here and there and this **** happens. My luck, man. My luck.

you probably just got an ignition component wet, nothing to really worry about. or you could have disconnected something with the pressure washer. just take a rage to everything that's wet and make sure everything is plugged in and dry.

I'm just worried I fried the optical pickup for the cam angle sensor thing... I'm gonna let it dry as much as it can tonight, even though it is cold outside, but in the sun tomorrow it should be drying up nicely. Worst case scenario, what could be bad? I'm not getting spark, so it has to be either the distributor or ECU. I don't know how the ECU could get damaged unless something shorted in the distributor and damaged it.
