Soak as much up with a paper towel you can. Try putting a ppr towl down there and use somethin pointy like a screw driver to poke it down around the plug. Don't take the plug out. I would put the wire back on and leave the boot cracked open so the rest can evaporate out. Shouldn't hurt anything.

As long as you never took the plug out, continue with life like it never happened. It should run just fine and will eventually evaporate.

If you got most of it out you shouldn't have any major problems. As your motor warms up the rest will evaporate. I had this same problem when I washed my engine bay. I got water in a couple of my plug wells. I had some misfire here and there, but not enough to trip a CEL. I then did my plugs and wires just to be safe. They needed it anyway.

Soak it up, let it dry, stop being completely and totally unnecessarily obsessed with finding a tick in your motor since they ALL tick and its just a fact of life. You should hear my wife's car, its a 2.0 Honda 4 banger that sounds like a sewing machine and its totally normal for that engine. If you keep messing with it you're going to break something as you almost found out today.

You were lucky it happened in your driveway.

I still think the "tick" that you're hearing is injector noise. Pull the connectors off, one at a time, and listen, to see if the ticking gets any quieter.
The belt trick is good, but, remember that neither the water pump nor the alternator will be working so do it on a COLD engine and don't run it for very long...

That's your heater core hose, there should be 2 coming out of the firewall. Not going to hurt anything if you pull the hoses off and put a pan underneath to catch the coolant that comes out before it stops. Just make sure you burp your coolant system whenever you have it open to the air like you did by accident yesterday.

look up how to burp your coolant system on the google or youtube. Why does nobody know wtf burping the coolant system is? That's like auto 101... You are like the 10th person I've had to tell this to on this forum lol.

The tick noise can be many things , cracked exhaust manifold, exhaust gasket missing a small piece , exhaust donut leaking , injectors , rockers , rods
