Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!
There are quite a few things that could be going on. If it was truly related to going through water then you may have water in an electrical connector or down in a spark plug well. Water in a spark plug well from a puddle, rain or washing the engine will cause it to run poorly due to lost spark on the affected cylinder.
The first step in diagnosing the problem is seeing if any fault codes are set. Have you checked for codes?
