Default bogs down at 2600 rpms

a few weeks ago i drove through a few large water puddles, and the car started spuddering when i would press on the gas peddle. it stopped for almost 2 weeks. them started again. i got onto the interstae and figured out that its not actually spuddering, but bogging down at 2600 rpms as if the governor is kicking in. its a 2003 dream cruiser 2.4L turbo. any ideas on what the problem could be would be a great help.

When was last time spark plugs & wires were changed???
Plugs wear out and so do the wires. That's a common cause.

Late response, just joined the forum. The " limp in", "limp home" mode restricts RPM's to about 2,500 when trouble reported to engine computer.
Use the key on/off procedure to read your engine code(s).
