1987 944S Engine cuts out after 1800 RPM


Vehicle Information: Model(924/944/968): 944S; Year: 1987; Body Type: Coupe; Total Mileage: 74000;

Car was running fine until I decided to wash down the engine bay. After cleaning with degreaser and hosing off I attempted to start engine. It started but would only run up to 1800 RPM. (with gas pedal to floor it would oscillate from idle to the 1800 RPM) Assuming I have gotten something wet I let the engine run at 1200 RPM to warm it up so as to create heat and dry things out. After 45 minutes no change. I Let the car sit overnight when I started it the next day it seemed to run fine until it got up to operating temperature and then started cutting out at 1800 RPM again. The problem still persists. Any advice of what may have happened?
