so i just replaced my spark plugs and put on a new accufab 75mm TB. after i was done everything ran just fine until i washed my car, after that when accelerating the car wouldnt accelerate. its hard to explain but it would be going fine and once i would hit around 2000 rpm something would go wrong and it would feel as if i just took my foot off the gas and when in 1st and 2nd gear on a manual you can imagine if your accelerating and just took your foot off the gas and slammed it back on. thats how it was feeling. also when sitting at idle if i tried to rev the engine just real quick it wouldnt rev right away it took a second and then would almsot die when i took my foot off the gas. i dont know any other way to explain this. i hope someone can help me hear, im lost.

Sounds like you got some water somewhere it doesn't belong in the ignition system. Pull the coils and see if they are wet inside where they should be dry.

Pull all 8 C.O.P.s, dry them and either vacuum the moisture out or put a paper towel in there to soak up the moisture. Don't put a hose on the engine compartment. :nono: I have done that for the last time.

The computer will relearn parameters, but it will do so faster if you disconnect the battery for about 10 minutes and then reconnect it. It will stall, sputter, etc until all parameters are relearned.

Was it just moisture on the COPs and plugs?

To prevent it if it happens even when it rains, I would make sure you have the lower splash guard installed, check the air filter location, make sure all tubing in the intake system is sealed, and maybe look for a wire that is hanging low off its hanger. This isn't a common thing, so if its something that comes and goes I would guess its something routed wrong or out of place, usually, but not always, broken things stay broken.
