Check for water in the dizzy, usually it will start if you wash it but it might run rough. But sounds like you took it for a swim lol.

yeah sounds like you went a bit bizerek witht eh water etc.... Spray some water dispercent around plugs, leads, etc and let it sit for a bit then give it a crank over.

Unless you had the pressure gun onto it, and you have opened up something and water has gotten in. But more likely just water condensation.

Try your air sensor, if its not plugged in, or the plugs corroded it will not work.
