When was last plug wire change? I'd start there. Plug wires and ignition parts are susceptible to moisture, I'd start with wires.

Please be more specific. I cannot tell what issues you are experiencing. Is the engine running rough? Misfiring, vibration, less performance than before? Is the Check Engine Light on?

Did you replace the plugs with the same plugs (Manufacturer) as the plugs you had in there. Some cars are very picky with plugs. ie: some Japanese cars will only run well with NGK Spark Plugs. Try to use only what Subaru recommends in your engine for the best performance.

1998 subaru forester runs rough when it rains.


Check the cap and rotor for internal carbon tracking or, just change them. Also, take a look at the coil when its dark and rainy and see if there is any arcing where the coil wire goes into it.
