    I remember seeing some of this in the mid-90's at the dealership, and I can't really remember what the solution was. I want to say there was a revised air tube or something.

    Some help, I know.

    Anyway - you are talking about water in your air filter box, right? I would be looking for reasons water is getting in. Definitely clean it out and monitor. If I can remember more I will post...
