Car won't start only after it rains or moisture is prevelant

Thought it was the battery, got replaced. but battery was only a year old. lately, it has been rainy and after a substantial amount of rain the car won't start. if it is dry out the car fires up with no problems.

    I suspect it is a temp issue not a rain issue.

My Blazer cranks over and over...killed the battery : ...next morning the second time I tried cranking it over it made a poof sound and started but with a lot of chugging. Can anybody help please?


Lynda, If it is the 4.3 V6, they are prone to getting moisture in distributor which causes the symptoms you are talking about including the poof. You can have scanned to see if trouble codes are stored, you may get multiple misfire.
If continues doing this have cap and rotor replaced and if wires and plugs are old do them to. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

Lately, whenever it rains, my 1998 chevy blazer wont start/won't run. the engine turns over, but it won't run. after 2 or 3 days it will fire up like nothing was wrong with it to begin with. any...


Whenever I had this problem, it was always cured with a new set of GOOD spark plug wires. Not generic set off the parts store shelf. Get some moisture removal spray and put it on both ends, the coil and the plug, before putting the wires on. Do one wire at a time so you do not get them mixed up. I do not think you have a distributor or a cap. If you do replace it also as it is over 20 years old.

Have a 2001 grand marqui. every time after it rains it won't start. cranks but wont run. been to 3 mechanics who can't solve the problem


car which won't start in the rain usually needs a new set of good spark plug wires, made for the engine not a generic set, and a healthy dose of spray which displaces moisture around all underhood electrical connections; especially if the plug wires are 10 years old. of course your three mechanics have already suggested that so i would take it to a dealer in case they have seen some odd thing about that particular rmodel over the years.

Jetta 95 won´t start


Moisture in your ignition system can cause this to happen , start with a cap/rotor and wire replacement. More then likely this will cure your rainy day blues.

Rough running after rain


It sounds as thou you have moisture in your distributor.Pull the distributor cap off and let the car sit and dry out for a couple of days and see if that fixes the problem.
