    there was a heavy rain that came with alluvial deposits and it rained all night but my honda 1998 would not rev completely as it sounds as if the plugs are wet and the exhaust comes with black smoke.

Moisure is the enemy on this one.  Get it replaced , rust can also come into the picture as well.

My Blazer cranks over and over...killed the battery : ...next morning the second time I tried cranking it over it made a poof sound and started but with a lot of chugging. Can anybody help please?


Lynda, If it is the 4.3 V6, they are prone to getting moisture in distributor which causes the symptoms you are talking about including the poof. You can have scanned to see if trouble codes are stored, you may get multiple misfire.
If continues doing this have cap and rotor replaced and if wires and plugs are old do them to. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

My 2004 Alero has a problem when it rains. It won't start after it was rained and it seems to me that something is getting wet under the hood and causing this that I have to let it sit after it rains,...


I doubt anything is getting wet, but you could be right on a bad connection. You could have enough humidity in the air after a rain to cause a weak connection to fail completely. It could also be a faulty relay.
Someone would need to figure out if you are lacking spark to the plugs or fuel pressure when it fails to start, then track down why.
