Greetings...... “Hi, I’m Don (aka MOLurch) and I look forward to helping you!”
This could have been caused by moisture intrusion to a sensor, Throttle Body Intake, etc.
There are a number of components that will cause "reduced power"
Rather than guess & throw money at it, you need to have the Vehicle Scanned for "Trouble Codes"
Many Auto Parts Stores will Scan for FREE & give you a readout of the Trouble Codes
IF components got wet, "dry out" may help & vehicle may start & run so you can get it to someone that can Scan the vehicle
Otherwise a tow may be needed
