Default HELP: Ran through a puddle of water

wussup yall. Just came home at 3 in the morning and it was raining real hard i mean like even with AWD it still had hard time getting traction. Well car ran through a FAT puddle that i couldnt see because the rain was so horrable. Car just F'd up now when i floor it it just jerks around 4 rpm at WOT. when car is not in gear and i gas it till 6 rpm everything is koo. When i listen 2 the engine it sounds the same as no damages. Now when i open my airbox i find out that my MAF sensor is wet. Just wondering how much damage have been caused to my car and if the MAF sensor can be the cause of the reason why my car is jerking at 4 rpm at WOT

I can't really understand what you're asking. Try posting again using English.

Default you sound LUCKY

taking even a few table spoons of water into your engine can end you up with bent rods(seen it happen to a 2 day old car)
If your MAF is wet, that most likely the problem. Take it out of the car and let it dry DO NOT TOUCH IT. You may also end up replacing that MAF. And changing your plugs and air filter would not ba a bad Idea while you are at it.

Are you running a stock intake system (unmodified) or some sort of aftermarket one?

well the MAF measures volumes of air by seeing how much power it takes to keep the little wire inside it hot, so in short yes it probably isnt a good thing that it got all wet and yes it is probably the reason the car isnt running good cuz it cant accurately tell how much air is going into the engine

Hmmm....65-70 in the pouring rain and the car was hydroplanning on stock tires...<sarcasm mode> WOW who would have figured. </sarcasm mode>

Some advice if it's raining so hard you are hydroplanning then you my friend are driving TOO fast!!!!

Just take the MAF out CAREFULLY! and dry it with a hairdryer.

funny thing about rain.. you don't have to slow down all that much for it.

really deep puddles can come up very deceptively. let's not fall into the trap most of my so. cali fellow drivers do and go 20 on the freeway when it rains.

no matter.
