There are over 200 faults that cause the check eng light to come on, so guessing is not an option, you will need to have the computer tested to see what trouble code is stored in memory.

Today I went through about 4-8 inches of water doing around 10-15mph and my truck is running kind of rough and a bit sluggish and now the check engine light is on. What could be the problem?

Water can raise havoc on all kinds of connections, sensors and components. Let it dry out good, the light could just be on from an engine miss firing when it got wet. If it continues to run poorly have the codes scanned and it will give a better direction on what area the water may have affected.

2002 venture wont start when its cold and rainy

Probably not. If one of the sensors were faulty you should have a check engine light on and a trouble code for the sensor.
Have you checked the plug wires ?
And as a side note, I don't show a 2002 Venture mini-van having a 3.8 engine.

Car turns over but won't start acts like it is out of gas, a few days ago the check engine light came on for a day and half , it was kind of sluggish and i stomped on the gas pedal going down the road...

If the check engine light was still on before the car wouldn't start then I would try to borrow an actron code reader from someone who has one, or see if you can rent one from autozone/advance auto, or buy the $35 pocket code reader ( they are so useful for diagnosing problems). This will give you the direction you need to go in. Spark issue, gas issue, or timing issue, etc..... If you get the code feel free to email and I can let you know what to do to remedy the problem. Good luck.

My 1999 Chevy Cavalier has had a sluggish/weak engine. I believe the gauge is high by a couple mph, and there is a bit of a grinding when I slow down. I'm far from being any kind of adept at car m

If one of the cylinders is not producing power the engine will be very sluggish. And you should have a check engine light on which would cause you to have the computer scanned for trouble codes.
A miss will not affect engine timing.

Car is sluggish, Low Acceleration, Check engine light flashes, Code reader indicates #1cylinder is out

Of course your car is sluggish, cylinder number one is misfiring, that is why the flashing check engine light, if you continue to drive this car this way you risk the exhayst system overheating and starting a fire. Ge the car tested for the cause of the misfire asap.

Fuel pump

Have you check your hoses? One of them might have a hole punture. Easy to replace once found. I had the same problem with sluggish and being noisy.
