    Thanks topgun 75, can you describe what I might be looking for. Do they go often?

    Well, I ended up solving this while waiting for a service tech. I noticed condensation on a couple of spark plug wires, close to the firewall (from the distributor...if that is what it is called) I took a trouble light (100 watt) and put it close to the 5 spark plug wires attached to this distribuitor and left it there for about 15 minutes. I took the light away and the car started on the first try. The light gave enough heat to dry out the wires. It was barely noticable but enough to prevent the engine from firing properly. I know years ago people used a hair dryer as well. Time for new wires or a dryer climate!
