My camry car 1998 model stops always anytime I entered into water or rain after about 20 minutes it will work without any repair


sounds like the shroud that goes under the car is missing and water is getting up to the distributor. if it gets wet along with many of the other electrical connections the car won't run until they dry out

Everytime it rains real hard. car won't start, after 2 days it then starts.. Everything works good..........Then a month later when it rains again, the car won't start for another 2...


Obviously water is the cause. Make sure all hood seals and underbody splash shields are in place, check firewall main connector for security. After it rains (without driving it in rain) check floor mats inside for water. A possible windshield or dash leak is allowing water into electrical area near instrument cluster (windshield may need resealed). Lift hood and look for water on any electrical connections disconnect dry, and seal with tune up grease from parts store.
Good luck

My 2000 GMC Jimmy wont start in the rain, when it stops raining and everything dries up it will then start do you know what the problem could be, thank you


if your vehicle has a distributor cap on it, this is where i would check for a cracked cap, this will allow moisture to get into, normally when it rains.

After heavy rain runs rough or won't start- ok when it dries out.


This would be plug wires or the distributor cap has cracks in them. You can check this with a spray bottle.

moisture problems, on a dry day start the truck and witha a water bottle or a hose start spraying different components , works better in a dark area, you may see a spark appear around the distributor, otherwise when you reach the problem area the truck will start to miss

Wiper blades work when it not raining...when it rains they dont work or work ocassionally


if its the same as i remember the electronic control on the wiper motor allows moisture to leak in, on a dry day remove the cover held on with three screws, let it sit for a bit then reinstall the cover with a small bead of sealant on the edge

1994 suburban gmc - no start in heavy rain or high humidity


When was the last time the truck was tuned up? sounds like there is a hair line crack in the distributor cap witch in turn lets moisture get in there and it won't start until it dries back out, the heat from the hair dryer is most likely drying out the moisture in the cap seeing its so close to the throtel body. Do a tune up.

Won't start under moist conditions


Distributor cap is cracked or the gasket between distributor and cap is bad.
