Dodge trucks never used to work in the rain.
Spray the ignition with WD40. It chases out the water and the problem will go away.

i would think it may be a distributor cap or wires as they are the only things that when wet are a problem like you mention or the coil may have carbon tracking try looking at coil and cap at night when dark and see if you see any arcing if you do there is your problem

What you can do is put water in a spray bottle and spray the plug wires and coil down and see if it will act up.Hope this helps.Good luck.

Commonly it's a problem with water in the distributor or coil packs. Which ever you have. 91 probably a distributor.

1500 chevy suburban 5.7 won't start in rain


Time for a complete tune up, this time put a distributor cap on too, plugs wires cap rotor, and use quality parts. what you got here is condensation getting under dist. cap most likely because cap has a hairline crack in it.

Car wont start when it rains or damp


I also have a 96 camery, and have had problems when it was damp, it would not run well. It did start, but did not run well. You mentioned that you had changed the distributer. If you have not changed the rotor too, that is more than likely your problem. The extreme high voltage that todays cars have makes it easy for the ignition spark to jump a couple of inches. If there is a rust line, a crack with moisture or what ever, the electricity will follow the path of least resistance. If you have any WD-40, spray it around on the rotor, distributer cap, and top of the coil. It should start, as this displaces the water. If you can watch it in the dark, you may see fire jumping around the coil, or distributor cap. I hope this solves your mistry!

1997 vw jetta stalling when raining


The problem in the Jetta could very well be with the ignition coil. I had the same problem for a long time and tried the usual replacing plugs, wires, etc, but nothing seemed to work.

It ended up being the ignition coil which over time, managed to sustain very small cracks. Even a small amount of moisture would cause all sorts of problems.

I replaced the ignition coil and had no problems after that.

1991 toyota wont start in wet weather


Remove the distributor cap & examine the ignition ccoil under the rotor. Does it have any burnt spots or hairline cracks? If so, replace it. Also, replace the plug wires if you replace the coil, if they are more than 5 years old. Coil failures are a VERY common issue.
