Ok so last night i was offraoding and got in some pretty deep water and got stuck, i knew i would get stuck but like always i still try to go through. So i get back to the house and clean out the water out of my intake box and then this morning i go out and start it and let it run. It runs ok but when i get into higher RPM's or try to get on it, it will bog down and almost acts like its flooding out? At first i thought i fried my MAF sensor but i reset my ECU and my intake and after driving around thats getting better but i still dont have the top RPM band. Im concerned that water got down into the manifold and that i may need to rip the whole damn thing apart. So let me know what yall guys think. Thanks for any advice and input. And yes i know im an idiot so ill just get that out there now haha.

I hate to agree with anybody that starts their sentence with "Dude" but he's right.

Well it did just happen...The fact that it was bogging down scared the crap out of me until i regrouped haha. But to update last night i ripped everyting out and cleaned it really good including my MAF sensor which was VERY dirty as one can imagine. But between that and cleaning my filter its running better than every and my intake temp is running really cold too which is very good. So thanks for the input "dudes" lol, I am still going to be changing the plugs though.

Titan is not built for running in deep water. The alternator is mounted low and the intake opening in the fender is situated such that the tire acts as an impeller to induct water.

Its possible to suck in a little water and still be in the clear...I have done it in the past, and usually its just the MAF that is wet or something along those lines. Water actually getting sucked into the engine will pass through easily or get vaporized during the combustion process. That is unless you hydro lock it, which take ALOT of water beign fed into the intake. usually the heads and valves take the majority of the damage.

So unless your engine is knocking your probably in the clear. No milky oil is a good sign, also check the radiator overflow for milky fluid. If its good clean fluid there too, then your fine. Just clean your MAF and your problems should dissapear. Also you may need to apply some di-electric grease to your spark plug boots, lots of mudding in deep water can cause them to ground out against the block and cause misfires and such.
