Sounds like old spark plug wires. They'll check them for free at the auto parts store. Around $40? Get pre-cut unless you're VERY handy and feel like tinkering.

The vehicle pulls all over the road when it is wet and is uncontrollablevy thing to stop it is to park itego all over the road the onlhicle pulls severely in wet weather only loses tractin and starts


replace traction control/abs sensors, and drop the fuel tank and replace the fuel filter. The fuel filter has probably never been replaced because of its location. You will NOT resolve the problem until you change the fuel filter.

Our 1999 blazer seems to have starting issues only when the weather is wet or damp. 113,000 miles with 4.3ltr engine. It will start if you aggressively pump the accelerator. No other problems starting...


I'd have a free scan at parts store for any trouble codes first , just in case, if no codes come up then I'd consider a new cap & wire set. One of , or the most common problem with hard start in wet/damp weather is plug wires & cap, especially if they haven't been changed that you know of since new.

Cutting out in wet weather and No power steering in wet weather?


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.
