Question about Cars & Trucks
When moisture or rains alot ,engine doesn't want to idle right .up and down idling and back firing
I'd say you need to change your plugs and wires. If they get damp, or moist, they will arc and cause a miss. Also could be a bad coil, or coil pack. Will do the same thing. Im not sure what make or model or year your car is [ would be helpful] , but that's where I would start. If you let me know the make and year, I can probably help out a bit more

ford has a technical service bullitin out on this vehicle for the intake gaskets leaking causing a vacum leak that set codes 171 174. the solution is to have the intake manifold gaskets replaced . call your local ford dealer and see what thay can tell you about this bullitin.
