Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have an 03 Ford Mustang GT . Today I was driving it went to the car wash and after I did it act like it wanted to die on me and it was losing power . Well I went and got gas treatment and fuel injector and put it in there and when I backed out of the driveway it just died on me . Put it back up in park pulled back in the driveway turned it off and let it set for a min when I started it back it act like it didn't want to start and it kind of had a knock to it so I am puzzled to what may be wrong with any suggestions

Well this all happened after the car wash. YOu got water up under the engine bay it seems. Did you spray down the engine? I'd Pop the hood and see if you can see any water or condensation around the coils and ignition components and wiring. Use rags to get standing water that you can see and let it dry out.
