Why did you let it sit for so long after rinsing it? I dont know about cleaning a hot engine with cold water, but I do know that I use engine brite often and everytime, spray the cold engine, let it sit(5-10 min) and rinse. Then start the car and let the fan and engine heat dry everything out for a few minutes, take it for a drive to operating temp and with the hot engine closed up under the hood let it get the rest of the moisture out.
