SOURCE: 2002 Chevy Blazer won't start after it rains

Porous ignition wires can do that..especially when they are damp....too much power is lost to ground on the way to the plugs while cranking. as you release the key, power to the starter is cut, supplying a bit more voltage to the coil, not turning quickly enough, the spark pushes the engine backwards a bit.

SOURCE: 1997 Chevy Astro Van starting problems after rain

these vehicles get moisture in the distributor cap. replace those with GM ONLY parts. When you go to install the cap, put a bead of wheel bearing grease on the outside of the cap only where it seals to the distributor base. This will keep out the moisture which causes corrosion.

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

When is raining and i drive it on to the water it stops and dont start. even if starts it the engine doesnt run properly..the next day ..no rain ..the engine work perfectly..


Change your distributor cap, rotor, and spark plug wires. This should be enough to prevent stalling in the rain.

When these components wear out, the problem is first noted when driving in the rain. If they are not changed, eventually the car will not start, even in good weather.

Will not start after raining.Takes two to three days of no rain to start again.Then van will run again till it rains again.


you don`t say but it sounds like the moisture from the rain is sitting on the plug wires causing them to short the voltage to ground and possibly moisture in the distributor cap.how long has it been since a tune-up was done to the van.

2000 windstar hard to start and stalls if it rains and for days after rain stops. Then it will start and run fine until the next rain.


I would start with a complete tune up. Ignition wires get hard and crack allowing moisture to get into the wire shorting it out. You also may have a cracked distributor cap that is collecting condensation. A tune up will probably take care of the problem. If you have not had one in a while that is the best place to start.

Car stalled while running


Check under the back seat for an access panel to the pump. Might be the pump or just the level unit. Good luck.

Car won't start in rain


Sounds like the distributor cap is cracked and allowing moisture in. I would start there.
