Did you check the air filter? You may have ingested water and got some on the Mass air flow sensor. Check the air filter and see if it is wet.

Checked the air filter, it's dry, but it started acting up when a 4X4 passed me and covered my car with water. It's very likely that I took some water in at that time . I have reset the computer and am waiting for my k&n filter to dry, it was quite dirty.

You should probably at least check the mass air flow sensor. Remove it and inspect the wires for any debris or wetness.
