Hey guys,

I new to fordmods and all and i've got a pretty serious problem with my car.

I've driven it in the wet before and it drives fine, but tonight there was a huge storm in Perth and it was pretty much a rain-out on the roads.. I was on my way back from a friends house and my car started spluttering like crazy and making severe noises like D-D-D-D-D-D-D (shaking the whole car) and would not accelerate :S I was quite worried because I pretty much had to idle my car all the way home.. (I ran it on both fuels, it did it with both but not AS bad on petrol)

Its just a stock EL Falcon i6 dual fuel no mods at all besides some brand new iridium IX sparkplugs.

I have a feeling it was somehow sucking in water but I don't know how..

Any advice would be very helpful, thanks :)
