Misfire on EJ22
I'm posting this for my friend, he recently bought a 91 Legacy wagon (EJ22). The other day it started missing and running rough. Here is some info:
- Spark plugs/wires are new
- Will start, but will die with no throttle (won't idle)
- Very laggy throttle response
- It did backfire through the intake a few times
- It misses at any rpm
- Compression is great
One over thing...it rained the other day, and since his hood is off the car at the moment, the engine got a bath. This happened before the problem started, so it very well could have shorted something out, I just don't know what. We did try to blow some sitting water off the engine block with compressed air but it didn't help much.
Any likely causes/info would be great, we need to get this car back on the road.

It got wet and won't idle because it is probably only running on 2 or 3 cylinders. Dry everything, pull the wires off etc, pull the plugs and check the gap if you havn't. Check your coil pack next.
You may have to take it off and put it in a dry warm spot for a couple hours.
( You may want to try a warm oven)
If you can keep the engine running and let it get hot it will eventually dry itself out. With my car this can take several days of driving back and forth to work.
