Ok now that my car starts i decided to drive it around and found a big problem...
The idle is really low rpms, the engine sounds more high-pitched than before, and when accelerating the car sorta pulls then slows down really quick and then pulls again, sorta like jerking. At full throttle the car accelerates quickly like it always has, but has moments when it seems like the engine is working half way, and looses power for a brief moment. What the hell is going on? I dont know much about engines, can ya guys help me?

PS:This problem started occuring after i washed my engine compartment...maybe water knocked a wire loose?
