YOU NEED TO SEE WHAT YOU ARE MISSING FUEL OR SPARK .YOU CAN TEST FUEL BY PUTTING A LITTLE GAS IN THE INTAKE. IF IT STARTS ITS A FUEL PROBLEM. YOU CAN TEST FOR SPARK BUY USING A OLD SPARK PLUG . PLUG IT INTO A PLUG WIRE LAY IT ON THE ENGINE HAVE SOME ONE TURN THE ENGINE OVER WHILE YOU WATCH FOR SPARK AT THE PLUG.

Starts hard when it rains


cover the distributor cap with plastic and the high voltage coil.

with a damp environment, high voltage usually jumps to the nearest ground and would not go to the spark plug.

you can test this at night when it is damped and raining, at night, let some body start the car for you and you watch the engine compartment without light so that you can trace where the spark is jumping out.

Ussually with the Preludes the main relay for the fuel pump needs to be replaced. One that i havent seen posted yet is the 'Coolant tempature switch' near the distributor some times becomes faulty. Cheap at local auto parts dealer.
