Re: Water in the Manifold?

The water should have evaporated by now. Maybe check the water temperature sensor the connector may not be tight.or check the grounds.

Did you spray the engine off with water? maybe you got water in the sensors. A little water in the manifold should not make that much of a difference.

Also check the airflow meter connection maybe it's loose?

hopefully one of these will fix your problem.
