I'm sure you got water in a place you shouldn't have

Did you cover things up? Water could have got through the air filter, COPs could have got wet. Did you take them apart and inspect them or just take them out and check the for sitting water? Also unplug the MAF and see if that got wet. This happened to me and it went away after a day.

If you haven't already and wanted to, you could take apart the COPs and check for water. Cliffy sent me a PM about this and said the COPs are easy to take apart and dry. In time the water will evaporate but you don't want that because that is bad on the COPs.

water doesnt belong in the engine bay, thats why we have hoods.You should hand clean your engine bay without pouring water on everything
