Car not starting or turning over indicates towards multiple possibilities. It can be issue with battery or weak battery. But if battery checks out ok, then it can be starter issue or faulty alternator or problem with low fuel pressure or no spark at spark plugs due to dirty spark plugs or faulty ignition coil or injectors getting cracked or dirty and needs to be cleaned.


To confirm the problem, the basic troubleshooting is required.

Lincoln town cars are famous for this because the rear opening to the hood has been placed right over your distributor so; the rainwater just soaks your distributor. to fix this permanently get a piece of oil roofing paper cut it about 6' wide and glue it over the gap from under the hood this will keep your distributor dry

Why won't my car start? It was running last night.


Try start the car again when it is completely dry, if it starts the rain may be short circuiting something on the loom in the engine bay.

If it still wont start,

will it turn over? (car tries to start)
- If it wont turn over the battery would be dead

- If it turns over but wont burst into life then we can go from there ^_^

When it rain it would not start Ineed to change the plugs Idont know wich one to buy


Hello there

This is a damp electric problem, the best thing to do is to spray WD 40 all around you engine and leave it over night to get the dampness out of your engine. There could be a problem with your distributor cap, you need to open this clean it and put it back on tightly.

Hope this helps, please don't forget to rate me.

i would suspect coil trouble either the top of the coil is cracked or water is getting on to or into high tention wire leading from your coil to your distributor.hint ;on a damp night lift you bonnet start your car and look but do not touch at all high tention wires if there is a high tention problem you will see a blue ark jumping about if so there is your problem.adrian

Starts hard when it rains


cover the distributor cap with plastic and the high voltage coil.

with a damp environment, high voltage usually jumps to the nearest ground and would not go to the spark plug.

you can test this at night when it is damped and raining, at night, let some body start the car for you and you watch the engine compartment without light so that you can trace where the spark is jumping out.

tnx 4 using fixya,
