First place to look is to make sure your plug wires are good and not getting wet. Spray the distributor or coilpack with WD 40 to eliminate moisture.

I have abmw 3 series 1996 parked it last night perfectly ok this morning it wont start the engine turns over very quick as normal could it be because its damp and cold outside what do you suggest?


I would replace Distributor Cap & Rotor; and especially all Ignition Wires (aka: spark plug wires) When it is damp outside, old and possibly cracked wires is the leading cause of engines not starting due to wires arcing (throwing sparks to other parts of the engine) and causes no spark where it is really needed and that is at your spark plugs so the engine will start.

I have a cadillac deville it is a 94 washed my engine at car wash yesterday when i got in to start it i got nuthing do you think it just needs to dry or did i miss up the car


a can of damp srart speayed around the electric's should get it going. Any part of the electric's the damp start can't get to is sealed so water won't have got in. Let the engine dry off before spraying. Hope this helps Cheers

1985 Ford Ranger will not start when damp and cool outside.


possibly distributor cap getting wet. Try this. When it's not starting, remove distributor cap and dry inside and outside with hair dryer on warm setting. See if it starts then. If yes, replace cap and rotor and make sure plug wires are clean.
If it still doesn't start, you may be getting mositure in a wire connector that operates spark to plugs.

Are you getting spark at plugs when it own't start?
Check by getting a spark plug and plugging a spark plug wire into it and grounding the side of the plug. crank engine and watch for spark at gap.
