First check the ignition coil, if they are good then open the distributor cap and clean CB points using a sand paper. Also change the condenser inside the distributor. This should solve the problem.

I take it for granted that you have checked the fuses and fusable links above the battery. Do you have a light on dash orange immobiliser warning light. Yes you have, as it comes on during self test when trying to start. Check to see if you have any power to fuel pump relay. no 409. Remove relay and place an amp meter across the two female terminals and turn key on. You should have a reading of 5 amps. this does two things 1 it tests to see if you have power to fuel pump and 2 that the pump is working correctly. Immobiliser system cuts power to fuel pump. Can do same test at fuse 28 if you prefer. if that all works then you can go back to ignition and check voltage to the coil possitive with multimeter on volts .one probe into the back of the harness plug on black wire with purple trace no 2 wire on plug the other wire to earth
if voltage then check coil resistances. if no volts then trace back to ignition source at fuse box thru key etc.

I drove my 2004 Pontiac Montana mini van in rain and water and now wont start. It cranks but no turn over.Day 2 hasn't started, in past when drove in water went out but started next day.


Hi Cynthia

If it cranks, it is turning over. I think you mean it cranks, but doesn't start.

Buy a can of WD40, the 'WD' is an abbreviation of 'Water Displacement', and was recipe/formula number 40.

Pull each spark plug cap in turn and spray the spark plug neck, and inside the spark plug cap. DON'T pull them all at once in case you lose the order

Then follow the spark plug leads to the distributor, this is a joiner for all your spark plugs and the power from the coil. The cap comes off with 2 clips. Spray inside the cap and the lightly, the bottom part. Pull the leads from the top of the distributor in turn, and spray the cap and the cover to the wire. DON'T pull them all at once in case you lose the order. The centre lead goes to the ignition coil. or coils, spray those too.

Now try and start it. The WD40 treatment should protect the electrics for a few months.

If that doesn't work, you need to check the condition of the spark plugs and if the gap is correct. And if that doesn't work, it is time to call a friendly mechanic.

Can heavy rain inside my car damage th A/C evaperator?


If you are referring to the evaporator coil, then not likely. Evaporator coils are reguarly cleaned by spraying water through the coils.

I have a 2001 Grand Marque with 151437 miles on it and never had a problem with it. Recently I drove through a very large rain puddle and now my car sputters and accelerates slowly. Oh and the check engine...


It seems to me youre being taken for a ride, if the problem started when you drove over the water puddle then that means that some water go into a key component somehow, perhaps the fuel tank itself or an electrical component. I would stay away from that shop and try to replace the fuel in your vehicle, if its possible for you. also try to take it to autozone if you can, they wil plug the scanner to your vehicle and tell you why the engine light is on for FREE! Good Luck.

1993 honda accord ex drove in rain belt squeeled


Sounds like maybe the ECU had taken in some water. Is your ECM located behind the engine on the firewall? There are two large fuses located on the passenger side wheel well in the engine bay. They are two large (2" plastic covers) over them.

1989 golf turns over, new distribitor and starting


Did you use electric grease on these parts, the plug wires,and coil pack need this grease on there. It prevents moisture and wetness from rain getting within the components and causing mis-fire. Did it rain or was it cold outside to produce moisture. Grease is $2 for small pack. I just worked on a 95 VW, changed the cap,rotor button, spark plugs, cleaned throttle body, new air filter, fuel filter. His would run fine, but would cut off sometimes up to hours until the moisture dried. After tuning it up, he no longer has the problem. He goes through water puddles to see if it will quit, but it hasn't yet. Worth a $2-$3 try.

No problem when fine, but when it starts to rain it is a nightmare. I can start the car when it rains but after I've drove the car, if its only down the road, it seems to get wet and won't start. It needs...


Rain going to inside...could be radiators, thermostat,.... air filter,.... spark plugs,...or alternator. Look like need replace. The motor doesn't like water. When you drove on downhill?

Or... its cold start? could be throttle or carby need lubricant spray. Spark plugs need new aswell or clean. For start up to quick.

Misfire


Take all of the coils out and blow air into the spark plug tubes and dry them out. Water can and will short out spark plugs.

1996 Jetta Trek 5spd dies


The Problem is the Distributor Cap and Ignition System. If you get water on these Components it will Instantly Kill the Motor. It will start back after these Dry out But, This will not Remedy the Problem. Your Mechanic needs to check the Ignition System and the Plugs and Wires and see if there is not a Crack somewhere that is allowing Moisture to Enter the System. Locate this Leak and this Problem is Gone. Please Rate my Response, I need all the Help That I can Get! Thanks!
