    thanks. i'm gonna try to spray a little water on the coil pack and see if the car runs rough. i think this will determine if the coil pack has a crack in it allowing moisture to disrupt the the ignition process.thanks again.

If it has a distributor cap, check for moisture inside when it is raining.

    Sorry, that is why I said "IF" it has a distributor. Check for moisture getting into some part of the ignition system.

02 VW Golf runs rough after sitting in the rain.

Water is probably leaking onto your engine somehow and shorting out the plugs.

The plug is located at the bottom of the steering column.The fault seems to be the mass air meter though.
