I washed my engine bay down /w engine degreaser and water. I had trouble starting it and smoke was pooring out of the intake. It runs now and idles perfect. I can rev it /w the clutch in but when i start going it starts to die in 2nd geasr about 30 mph. I then throw in clutch to stop it from dying. When it is chugging it sounds like a misfire but without the backfire. It sounds like water is getting sucked into the engine.

I took off the intake assembly and inspected it for signs of water(calcium xor soap deposites) and i couldn't find any. I luooked in the throttle body and couldn't find any traces of water in there.

I can rev the car when the hood is up but when the hood is down it chugs/misfires.

I think I may shoot a video of it.

Didn't you post this up a while ago? Did you give it a few days like they told you earlier?

^ I 2nd that.

I've had it happen to me the first time I washed the engine on my gen 2. Big mistake not covering up the distributor.

Anyways take off the distributor cap (3 bolts) and soak up any water that you see.
