ok so the car was working perfect untill it rained. the car has a cone air filter and water got into my intake. so i pulled the plugs out to get the water out. after this ran perfect for about a week then started reving up by itself. so i would just give a little gas and it would go away. then one day it just died on me... i have spark and fuel pump is working. not sure if throttle body or air flow sensor might have gone out. any ideas what it might be...?

Need to check for codes in your computer to see if a sensor is out. That is where I would start.

Have Had the same problem.
The car seems to be flooded when it happens. My Mechanic replaced the Distrubtor cap and changed the spark plugs. I still steer clear of puddles, but the car doesn't die when it goes through them anymore. Write me if I can help any.
