Anyways let me start by saying the car is a 03 Termi, Pullied Tuned at 498 hp 69k on the miles just had engine and tranny gone through 2k ago... anyways its on my car lot so I figured i'd cruise it since my car is down. Anyways I went through the car wash I use for our car lot and I forgot doh it has the under body wash and the fender liner is not on the passenger side from the bumper repaint. either way I had the car turned off during the wash so I go across the street to the gas station this is when I first noticed a problem it was backfiring at 3k-4k and bogging BAD...

I went ahead and filled it from empty to full. started it again let it idle.. idled fine for awhile so I went to leave.. dead.. nothing.. pushed it back.. got it to start idle for awhile got half a mile down the road.. died.. so I took the filter and MAF off with this pocket chain screw driver I have :rockon: tried it.. same thing would idle for awhile randomly dieing blah blah.. so I called the parts store had them deliver me some MAF cleaner on the side of the road also had them bring the code reader since I didnt have mine... I got a Distributor/Ignition Module Code... which makes since.. the thing sounds and smells like its loading up bad like its @ WOT all the time as soon as you give it any amount of gas

Park it and wait for the wet electrical connections to dry out.

Or pull the coil covers off and inspect each coil and spark plug, while drying out each individual plug well.

If you drive it long enough with water in the wells, the arcing to ground will burn through the boots and they will keep arcing even after everything drys out.:nonono:
