So it snowed out here. I find that when I go over snow, or a puddle (doesn't have to be deep at all), my engine will bog. It idles a little low, almost feels like one cylinder isn't firing. But if I try to accelerate, it will actually decelerate, and will probably stall if I keep on the gas. It's really strange. I hope I'm doing an ok job of describing this. If I let her sit idling for a few minutes, the problem goes away and I can resume driving. Anyhow, have a clue what this good be?
My spark plug wires are fairly old. I checked for water or snow in my distributor cap, seemed ok. I'm wondering if it's something to do with my wires, but any input would be super appreciated.
