You could use a small drill and drill the distributor cap to allow the cap to breath.Some models had inbuilt breathers due to spark leakage and build up creating problems.Your coil/s could have a very small heat crack,pour some water around the base of the coil/s while engine running if it reacts its more than likely the problem.

How do i fix my 1979 truck to crank better


If you are talking about actual CRANKING (with the starter turning the engine over) then I would check all of the electrical connectors on the battery cables to make sure they're clean. If they are clean and tight you could get a load test done on the battery at pretty much any auto parts store or repair garage.

IF you are talking about the actual STARTING of the engine (though it turns over good with the starter) and it ONLY happens when it's damp out, then it could very well be ignition related.

If it's been awhile or you don't know when the last full tune up was done (distributor rotor, cap, spark plug wires and spark plugs) that would be a good place to begin.

Now, if the plug wires themselves don't look the greatest you could simply try to spray the wires and distributor cap with WD40.

This will help to dissipate any moisture that may be causing the poor starting condition. (The "WD" in WD40 actually stands for water dispersion)

IF this helps, then it's time to do a full tune up.

Hope this helps.

My 09 sebring hesitates often while driving. There is no specific time like in town driving, on expressway, and it does it drivng slow or fast. Twice it has cutoff for no reason (while driving) but will...


Simple things first.

When was the last time you had a complete tune-up?


Spark plugs, wires, distributor cap rotor (cap), fuel filter, & air filter.These are all simple things that keep you car running efficiently. These, along with the oil and oil filter will protect your motor, improve it's reliability, and maintain gas efficiency.

Check your coolant too... .

Regular tune ups

Includes: Oil & oil filter, fuel filter, air filter, every 6 months if you drive it a lot.
At that time check spark plugs, spark plug wires, distributor cap, rotor. and replace if necessary.

Change trans fluid and filter every 2 years if you drive it a lot, other wise 3-4 years.

Switch to synthetic oil. It's worth the price.
Don't add any "additives". They shouldn't be necessary and may actually do more harm than good.

Watch how you drive.

Could be timing, air filter, plugs, wires, distributor cap, rotor. Perform basic tune up and see if that helps.
