SOURCE: Rough running after rain

Take some WD40 and spray it on the spark plug wires. If the problem goes away, then you have a bad wire/s. When it rains the moisture causes a misfire in the break in the wire. The WD40 disperses the water and give temporary relief. You can do this until you get a chance to change the wires. Once the car is running fine the problem should not come back since the heat of the engine will keep the wires dry.

SOURCE: 1990 Buick Century 3.3L Check Engine Light comes on, stalls.

Need to check for fault codes. Possibly a faulty sensor causing the fuel system to run rich or lean.

I have a 1989 5-series BMW which sometimes stalls after changing from reverse to drive. It also sometimes shakes when first driving in reverse before changing to drive.

Check the cap and rotor for internal carbon tracking or, just change them. Also, take a look at the coil when its dark and rainy and see if there is any arcing where the coil wire goes into it.

Jetta GLX 1998 (old body), when it rains heavy, car run rough


Sounds like you need new wires and or cap and rotor, had the same problem on my jetta 1.8L when I would drive it in heavy rain it would bog down and misfire. The water blows threw the rad right onto your distributor and wires causing the short (old and cracked or just defective). Try it out I'm sure that will fix it.
