Whenever it rains the van shows fuel err and will not start until I wiggle computer many times...nothing is wet under hood but its a problem every time it rains and its getting tiresome.


Find out whether all FSBs have been incorporated. Check battery age and condition. Find out whether alternator and starter are due for replacement. My 2000 Windstar is on its seventh battery. Many earlier problems were traced to battery failure.

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.

Runs poorly when its wet outside


Sounds like your distributor cap is loose. It's likely getting water in it when you drive through water.

2000 windstar hard to start and stalls if it rains and for days after rain stops. Then it will start and run fine until the next rain.


I would start with a complete tune up. Ignition wires get hard and crack allowing moisture to get into the wire shorting it out. You also may have a cracked distributor cap that is collecting condensation. A tune up will probably take care of the problem. If you have not had one in a while that is the best place to start.

2000 Nissan Frontier starts to stall when raining out


does your model of vehicle have a distributor? if so, there is likely moisture getting inside. Replace the cap and check to make sure the seal isnt broken.

Car stalled while running


Check under the back seat for an access panel to the pump. Might be the pump or just the level unit. Good luck.
