ENGINE SUDDENLY NOT STARTED IN LO

2000 Mitsubishi Adventure

Engine Mechanical problem
2000 Mitsubishi Adventure 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 36,568 miles

I forgot to close the hood cover of my car and early morning was heavy rain the engine compartment were wet with rain water. When I was trying to start it started but it was stop when the gas pedal released. However, when the gas pedal slightly press the engine running smoothly.
What I did then is adjust the idle adjustment screw to make slightly open the venturi valve of the carburator. Have observe also that when engaged the clutch of the aircondition compressor the RPM dropping, it should be increasing as I observed before the trouble arrised.
What could be the problem and what parts something wrong?
