Car Won't Start When It Rains...

Every time it rains my car will not start. After it has cleared up and dried out i works fine. I went to a mechanic and was estimated almost 600 for a tune up and coil replacement. Does that sound right?

Try to check distributer cap. It may not be sealing tight as the clips used are notorious for not sealing properly. Also check your wires while you are at it.

SOURCE: Starting my car when it rains...doesn't happen, why?

i did have problems with my car not starting in the rain. after changing the distributor cap and HT leads it still. My last thing to try before taking it in was to change the ignition coil. I ordered a new and installed it and it started right up! it has rain a couple times since then and it's still starting! so i'm hoping it keeps working. hope this helps anyone.

Moisture in your ignition system can cause this to happen , start with a cap/rotor and wire replacement. More then likely this will cure your rainy day blues.

The rain water is fouling the old coil wire, replace the ignition wires.

My 2004 Alero has a problem when it rains. It won't start after it was rained and it seems to me that something is getting wet under the hood and causing this that I have to let it sit after it rains,...


I doubt anything is getting wet, but you could be right on a bad connection. You could have enough humidity in the air after a rain to cause a weak connection to fail completely. It could also be a faulty relay.
Someone would need to figure out if you are lacking spark to the plugs or fuel pressure when it fails to start, then track down why.

When it rains car won't start


Get a can of starting fluid from the parts store, next time it fails to start spray the fluid into the air intake to the engine, if it starts you have a failing electric fuel pump inside the gads tank.

Everytime it rains real hard. car won't start, after 2 days it then starts.. Everything works good..........Then a month later when it rains again, the car won't start for another 2...


Obviously water is the cause. Make sure all hood seals and underbody splash shields are in place, check firewall main connector for security. After it rains (without driving it in rain) check floor mats inside for water. A possible windshield or dash leak is allowing water into electrical area near instrument cluster (windshield may need resealed). Lift hood and look for water on any electrical connections disconnect dry, and seal with tune up grease from parts store.
Good luck
