my brother drove his bronc through about a foot and a half of water and now she just wont run right its a 95 351, it idles fine until you put your foot into it the truck will just sputter and pop any ideas on what to check first? the trucks got a 6 inch suspension lift and 35's so he didnt completly soak the engine in water but just enough i guess

id check out the ignition system, water in the dizzy would cause something like that. Ive had it happen to me many a time, ether works best to get rid of moisture in electronics. Try that out, check your wires and plugs as well.
