1998 Volkswagen Polo 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual

Since driving through a large puddle my endinge has been misfiring. This only seems to happen when the engine is under pressure. I have replaces the spark plugs and the distrutor cap.
Nothingin the engine seems to be damp still from the wetness.
Also when it rains the engine takes a while to start and then misfires untill it is warmed up

What could it be

Engine running rough or misfiring can be cause by the following: 1. Defective spark plug
2. Inadequate spark/coil, defective spark plug wire.
3. Lack of compression
4. False air leakage.
5. Faulty fuel injectors.
6. Insufficient fuel pressure.
7. Contaminated fuel.
