Check your spark plug wires, you may have a crack in one of the wires that is allowing moisture to enter, and water and electricity don't mix.

Not likely your problem. Sputters are usually spark and or fuel problem. Here is what we recommend to our customers with a drive problem like yours. First fill up with known good gas like Shell Premium. Not $5 worth, not regular, not plus, PREMIUM and fill it up!!! See how she does. You may just have a slightly dirty injector. Of course there is the tune up, which if due, should be done anyway. We have seen the 4.3 do this with a faulty or dirty EGR valve, bad dist caps and rotors, a huge amount of them had bad plug wires, bad injector but rare, plugged fuel filter, weak fuel pump, The 4.3l chevy engine is a beast and will run and run and run. They have their quirks but they last. I pray I've help.

Did you change the plug wires when you changed dist. cap and rotor?? If not and you want to be sure they are the prob, wait till it's sunny outside and the truck works fine, then get a spray bottle (like an empty windex bottle or something) and put some salty water in it and spray the wires with it when the truck is running. If the engines starts to act up, sputter and what not, the wires are done for, throw em and change em. Also if it's dark enough you will usually easily see the sparks flying around the wires and all when you spray them. Coil isolation might also be the problem, but it's alot rarer than the wires. Same test procedure can be easily done here also. If both those test out good with the salty water, then it's going to be harder to pinpoint, but at least the good ol' salty water trick will work with anything related to humidity/rain and will help you size down the possible problems and areas that can be in fault.

What causes motor to sputter or run rough

Assuming your truck is old enough to have a distributor cap and wires, either one could be shorting out when wet or damp.
You may need to replace the cap, rotor and wires to fix the problem.

I have a 1997 Nissan Kingcab SE 4x4 with a 2.4. Everytime it rains it wants to spit and sputter. What causes this to happen?

i would check the distributor cap for cracks, this can draw moisture when it rains, and cause a engine to do as you are saying, spit and sputter, and even cut out.

Start with a set of plug wires, since it seems to happen in the wet weather, and pick up a can of wd40 or wiredry to keep in the truck.Hope this helps.

Everytime it rains my car sputters for a while

I believe it is an air-flow problem. I have a 2001 Beetle that did the same thing & no mechanic could solve the problem until I finally succumbed and took it to the dealer. This was a free repair for me as it is a well known problem. Do not leave it unchecked as it will ruin your cat converter/exhaust system which is a costly repair.
