Dont play in mud unless you ready to reap the rewards. now you need to drain and change all your fluids like mentioned above. replack your bearings32r, cause there is probably mud in them. clean the bottom and hit all your zerk fittings with grease

am i missing something? when did he say he was in the mud? he blasted his motor with water, why would mud in your diff, cause an erratic idle? you got something wet when you blasted it with water let it dry out, put a fan in your engine bay.

The advice about changing fluids wasn't neccesarily the solution to the idle problem, but a good general maintainance practice after a trip like his.
