When driving in wet weather there are two issues:
a) When driving in wet weather, the vehicle cuts out and cannot be started for about 20 min, after which it starts.
b) When driving in wet weather, it seems to loose the power steering and is very dificult to turn.
Why is my engine oil red when i drained it?

I sounds by your explanation, that the belt which drives the alternator is slipping when it gets wet.
When this happens the alternator stops charging the battery, and when battery voltage drops the engine cuts out and won't start due to not having enough current to supply electrons as well as starter motor.
Have the belt tension checked, as well as charging output of alternator, should fix it.
