Vortec v6 location of ignition control module


Ignition module is bolted on bracket with ignition coil. Not likely to cause issues in wet/damp weather. Suspect faulty distributor cap or ignition wires as the source of the problem. You can run the vehicle and use a spray bottle of water and spray around the dist. cap to see if engine falters or stalls. If so, that will be your problem. If ok, spray around the ignition wires to see if any problems arise

In wet and damp weather my 1988 Golf GT runs real rough and eventually stalls, but runs fine in dry conditions. What's going on?


sounds like its time for tune up wires and rotor cap and such..with age they break down and moisture is shorting some of this out..to test this using a spray bottle spray these wire down and listen for a snapping sound from the coil..this is proof of the water getting the old wiers wet..(condensate moisture)

98 altima has trubble starting in really damp wet weather. change pulgs and wires already.


if it only does this in damp weather, its more likely its in the ignition system. if it has a distributor check the cap for moisture and cracks. if it does have a cap. spray wd-40 inside cap to displace the moisture. WD stands for water displacement. when its dry outside and engine running. get a spray bottle and fill it with water, spray the dist. cap and wires. if there is a problem the car will chug and almost stall out. if this happens, thats the problem. have a good day !!

My car had a cracked manifold, my dad replaced it and put on new exhaust pipe and muffler, now cars seems to run when the weather is warmer and not run properly and stall when weather is cold, damp, wet...


obvious problem would be that your dad messed up the spark plug wires while replacing the manifold

however, I'm assuming you have already looked at that choice.

The next best guess would be the O2 sensor and/or the O2 connector

Then there is the possibility that he disconnected the distributor connector and broke it in the process, and since it isn't tight anymore you are getting the problems only when cold and/or wet


God luck and keep us posted

Our 1999 blazer seems to have starting issues only when the weather is wet or damp. 113,000 miles with 4.3ltr engine. It will start if you aggressively pump the accelerator. No other problems starting...


I'd have a free scan at parts store for any trouble codes first , just in case, if no codes come up then I'd consider a new cap & wire set. One of , or the most common problem with hard start in wet/damp weather is plug wires & cap, especially if they haven't been changed that you know of since new.

2006 pontiac Grand Prix stalls in wet weather


A cause for that would be an oxygen sensor getting wet, the one on the inlet side of the catalytic converter.

Car stalls in wet weather


Take a look at the ignition system, most likely there are coils and ignition wires on this car, but don't quote me on it. However, this is very likely on a seventeen year old car.
Anyway, if the wires are more than four or five years old, it might be a good idea to replace them as moisture tends to get into the insulation and cause a misfire or stall. (I had this problem with my '89 Tracer and it drove me nuts). Another issue is check the ignition coils and make sure there are no cracks as these will less moisture in and cause a misfire.
