Question about Chevrolet Silverado 1500

1 Answer

When ever it rains or the humidity is high and the truck sets for several hours it will not start. It turns over but it will not start. I appears to be getting fuel, but the spark may be weak. I have replaced the coil, distributer cap, plugs and ignition module. But the problm persists, I have been working on this problem for well over a year and have taken it to a mechanic and he replaced a couple of eleectronic components but the problem persist.

What is the specific year make model and engine size? Would check the crakshaft position sensor and the wiring to it. It's quite possible it may be cracked.

My 01 Kia Rio won't start when it rains. It turns over. It takes from 1-24 hours and it will start right up. Any suggestions

Sounds like humidity is the issue, may want to check your ignition system, like your wiring, plugs, ignition coil and related components.

99 ford ranger, most of the time it will start and run just fine, but sometimes it won't start after several attempts for hours, then it will start again eventually

Does this problem become more common during cold weather days ? Or when it has rained ? Humidity and moisture can affect a few components which make it hard to start.

Might want to double check your vacuum lines also.

I have a 2000 Chrysler Cirrus. When it rains,

Check Battery, all battery connections, the ground from motor to frame and from battery to motor and or body. A poor ground connection can cause all kinds of problems. Also i had a car that would not start in high humidity that turnedout to be the starter. It was pulling too much juice from the battery at high humidity.

Car stalls when at a stop. Has only happened at

Check the state of your engine's ignition system. Normally, rough running in the rain or during hours of high humidity indicates a worn/damaged ignition distributor or associated components.
