Question about 1997 Chevrolet Cavalier
This has been a great car until the fall rains and wet snows arrived. This car needs to be cranked multiple times to start (and maybe it will or won't). Something seems to be getting wet and if the the weather is very cold or sunny and dry, there is absolutely no problem. As I have no garage, the car sits outside and is exposed to all the elements. It coughs, sputters, and sometimes you even hear a small backfire before I give it up. The following items have all been replaced: Battery (because it was weak, not related to start issue), ignition module (computer), ignition coils, plugs and wires checked, crank sensor, wiring harness to computer checked. Yesterday I had to tow it to the garage after a 25 cm snowstorm. Once the car starts, and warms up the misfire and rough running is gone as though nothing ever happened.
Can someone please help? With all the money I have put in this car since Oct 1st, I need to keep the car to get some of my money's worth out of it.
