2019 Renault Captur loss of power and car "juddering"

Car: Renault Captur
Year: 2019
Variant: HATCHBACK 1.3 TCE3 GT LINE
Categories: Running Rough, Starting & Power Loss
Travelled 20 miles to a hospital through some heavy showers. After a stay of an hour started to drive away and realised lack of power especially on hills small or large. After 20 miles stopped to pick up some items from a shop. Restarted after 20 minutes everything back to normal.

Can only think of water getting on electrics possibly like ignition pencil coil and cutting out a cylinder and the drying out with engine heat

Hi there, I'm just looking for answers to my problem. I too have a capture. After the heavy rain a few days ago, i noticed when i drove it the day after, a lot of water cane out from under the front of the car. When i drive it, its starting to kangaroo. Iv took it to a garage. He said there's no faults on the car so it looks like waters getting in somewhere. He's advised me to get a sparky to look at it. Do you have any ideas where it could ge coming in x
Thankyou x

Check to make sure there is no engine coolant leak , check reservoir . Check water drains at bottom of doors are clear , clear with a piece of wire if needed . Check windscreen / bulkhead water drains are clear .
