Q: Studdering Corolla on 1999 Toyota Corolla

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
Went through large rain puddle sin the road. Drove fine for a while after. Son took the vehicle later, refueled it than startted having studdering/vibrations during acceloration with a definate lack of power. I met him and drove the car home, found the lack of speed but was able to get and maintain highway speeds. This morning I undid the gas cap initially after review of engine compartment components and started the vehicle. No problems and ran it to the store operating normally, 10 minutes later it acted up again... There was also a popping sound when increased engine speed coming from the air cleaner. Water damage?? bad gas?? SOS

Pull out the air cleaner filter and make sure it isn't wet, if it is, replace the filter and dry out the air cleaner housing. You may have water on or around the ignition wires, and that can be causing an engine misfire. Is the check engine light on?
