high idle after going through puddles


does anyone have any ideas on this one. after driving through puddles (especially on the passenger side of the car) the engine decides to idle at around 3000rpm and will not coe down for approx 5 mins.

anyone have any ideas what could be causing this or what water could be getting onto?

cheers daz

Re: high idle after going through puddles

Air filter and intake picks up from inside the nearside/passenger wing. I'm assuming that you have a RHD car so that's the left wing looking from the drivers seat.

If the water has got through the airfilter and into the intake system, it can cause damage to the MAF, throttle, etc.
