but it smelled a bit funny, and the idle was different sounding. its back to normal now though, wonder what the hell was wrong?

Do you have the cover on your distributor?
Take if off if you do - the moisture will sit underneath even when the engine gets hot.

Jet washing the engine is VERY BAD for your car. Remember the electrical conectors on your car are about 10 years old and may be brittle. If you want to clean the engine try using an aerosol spray oil on dirts bits of engine and wipe off with a cloth or toothbrush for difficult bits. I know it may take longer but its better than shelling out for a new alternator.
