Too many puddles..rough starting
Hey guys, so in a recent rainstorm I couldnt resist but to turn towards massive puddles. I was hitting puddles like a foot deep or so. Then I came to a stop and when giving her gas to get going it was putting out and then getting sudden acceleration until I shifted and then similar putting then acceleration. I got to a gas station and it wouldnt turn over when trying to. Sat there 20 minutes just thinking then tried again and she turned over barely. Kind of was just going blub blub blub for 10 seconds then fired up. Now when I turn it over it has a rough start (as it barely starts). I also get a good wiff of gas and if I hit the gas when shes idleing it hesitates before reving up. Any ideas folks?
I replaced distributor cap, rotor and wires and still am having the same problem. It has been turning over now but it is one ugly start and if I hit the gas hard it will hesitate and sputter. After it happened I checked if the air filter was wet and it was dry as a bone.
Pull the plugs and clean them as well as the air filter as recommended above. Don't forget to clean the plug wire boots at both ends.

Might be a long shot, but ya might of got some water in your gas (maybe disconnected rollover valve or leaking tank seal) ... or perhaps in your charcoal canister. Maybe check that guy out, easy to pull out. Otherwise i'd run some seafoam or heet through it just in case, a cheap fix if so.
Found out the problem when checking for spark. Coil pack was not putting out nearly enough. Took it off and popped in a new one. Old coil pack was split right down the bottom. Problem fixed and runs great. Thanks people
