Replace your air filters, sounds like you have buildup and the addition of moisture is chocking your engine and starving it of oxygen.

My daughters 2007 Odyssey loses power in rain. It started when she went through a deep puddle coming from work at night. Now whenever there is rain it has little power.


Possible the trip throught the deep puddle soaked the alternatior when water got above the splash guard mounted on the under carrage suggest you check all of the electrical wiring amd relays to see if any are wet or are now exposed to the weather. Good luck. Fixes for deep puddle adventures can be difficult to find and fix.

You need to have the alternator checked for proper output and go from there. You may have flood it with water and that caused damage to it.

Loss of power when it rains.


If your air filter is not fresh, the difference in the weather conditions actually causes the air filter to restrict the flow of air into the engine just enough that the super sensitive system you are driving notices it.

There are also other sensors that pick this up causing a performance change in the operating system. If your filter has recently been changed then of course other than being soaked with water in freezing temperatures, this shouldn't be a factor. Just a consideration:

this is also a sign of the car going into the "limp" operation and could also be caused by something getting wet, such as the ignition system. Double check your seals and panels that block moisture from your engine components. Wiring can be sprayed with sealers to help in preventing excessive moisture if your wiring is showing any age.

Good Luck

94 isuzu trooper when it rains the truck stalls,loses power and turns off. drys out for a day or two then is fine if not raining


Well you can try taking a spray bottle full of water and spraying lightly all around the plug wires plus the cap and coil area.Do this after dark and look for any sparks jumping.More than likely you have plug wires than need replacing or you are getting moisture under your distributer cap.

When driving inthe rain if I go through a deep puddle I lose my ability to steer...it is like the car has los power but it hasn't


This is very common, Tires, especially wider tires, have hard time going straight through puddles. It is very common. You may want to think about thinner tires. Also, thinner tires go better through the snow as well.
