Ok this one is strange. This morning it was raining its a$$ off and to get out of my drive way i have to drive though a 6 inch puddle/small pond. That usually throws water up everywhere, its fun so i push through it a little harder sometimes. Anyway, i get about a mile down the road and my tack starts flying all over the place and my truck started surgeing. I thought it was spinning out in the heavy rain but it wasnt. I drove about another mile and it kept doing it. I turned around and stopped, I raised the idle just a bit and the tack was bouncing to full throttle to none and the engine was surging. Then it just quit. I drove it back home and it seemed ok so i turned around again and came on in to work with no problmes. Im hopeing just some water got on my cam sensor, any ideas. Thanks

6 inch isnt that deep we just got some tidal flooding and it came halfway up my rim on the truck and i was going pretty fast (to get through quickly) and i didnt have any problems. BTW Check your air filter it could be wet.

Well its more than a puddle, its about 6 to 8 inches deep and as wide as the road for about 2 blocks. I guess i got some water on something that didnt like it.

Same thing happened to me the other day well kinda. I cleaned the engine on my truck by lightly spraing it with the water hose. Later went to go to a buddies house and my truck was surging real bad and the RPM's were bouncing all over. It only lasted a few minutes and now the truck runs fine. You probably got water on the CPS or something I don't think it is anything to worry about.
