Check spark plug wires and ignition parts, try using WD-40 type of moisture remover. Ignition coils tend to react to moisture if it gets inside.

My 2003 Monti Carlo stalls when it rains, what could be wrong with it!! Ty


Sounds like moisture is getting into the ignition. This could be due to bad gaskets. I would replace the distributor cap and rotor, pick up some high temp silicon sealant, replace the parts and LIGHTLY put silicon sealant around the distributor where it meets the mounting bracket. This should keep the moisture out of the ignition.

04 silverado running rough wants to stall...when you can get it running .real bad when rainning


possibly bad spark plug wires, when the plug wires are old they crack from weathering so moisture can act as a conductor between each of the wires and cause it to run poorly. check the basics, fuel filter, plugs ect.

Just about anytime it rains or damp out my 1996 Sentra will run fine for about a mile or two then if I stop at idle it will start running real bad, die out and not start for between 45 minutes to an hour...


This is a classic symptom of bad spark plug wires or a bad distributor cap. Changing the cap, rotor, & wires is generally the first step. Moisture can also cause problems with the ignition coil & sometimes fuel control (computer sensors) systems

2001 TAHOE STUCK IN 4LO CANT SWITCH BACK TO 2HI


does the light say its in four low and it actually isn't or is the truck actually in four low and you cant drive normal speeds? Alot of times in winter and rain conditions moisture gets into plug connection under vehicle and causes a malfunction or short due to moisture and will stop actuators from working. Unplug connections and check for moisture, Spray plug with carb cleaner or starting fluid and blow out plug with lots of compressed air. You can also use a blow dryer or heat gun to dry the plug but do not use starting fluid if you do.

'93 Honda Civic not starting after rain.


It seems prety obvious that the rain caused the problem. It don't take much moisture to mess up a distributor. Try spraying a light coat of WD40 inside the cap and don't wipe it out. It will displace any moisture that might be in there.

2005 Jetta is cutting out when slowing down/coming to a stop.. has 60,000 miles on it ..coincidentally, it has also been raining..not sure if that has anything to do with it..don't get much rain here


If it has a good ignition system (tune up) and idles right before you drive it then try changing the air filter. If you don't get much rain then you probably do get a lot of dust. The sudden rise of moisture in the air could be making "mud" on your filter. That's about the only way, I can think of, that the rain would have any effect whatsoever on how your car runs.
My next target would be the fuel filter. If changing the filter makes a big difference, that's great but, you might still have dirt in the tank, especially if it's dustier than usual where you live. Temporary improvement means dropping the fuel tank and cleaning it.

Rough running after rain


It sounds as thou you have moisture in your distributor.Pull the distributor cap off and let the car sit and dry out for a couple of days and see if that fixes the problem.
