My 07 Honda foreman runs just as it should if i keep it dry, it's fine in snow also. But when I drive through a river during hunting or drive through very wet areas, the engine slowly shuts off once i release the throttle. It's starts back up all fine and once I start giving gas to drive again, it usually coughs once or twice and then I could drive again until I release the throttle again.
So basically when I'm not giving enough gas, the engine sputters and shuts off.
It only happens when I go through water though. Is there water getting in the fuel somehow?

AK: Welcome to the forum. Check your wiring for tightness and good connections. Also, make sure that water or water vapor isn't getting in your airbox.

Thank you guys for the responses. I'll try to do all that sometime next week and I'll let you know how it goes.

Hi: Also check the spark plug well for a build up of dirt in there -- there should be a drain hole in the bottom of the well to let water out, which maybe plugged..
