    Car doesn't start in rain

    Hey,

    I got this issue where my car doesn't start after it rains. Like if its been raining for like 15-20 minutes and I try and start it no problem. But if its been raining hard or raining for a long time, there's no chance of the car starting. And it wont start till the sun is out and every bit of moisture has been dried up.

    All it does is crank, nothing else... any ideas?

    its a 94 Civic Si (no other issues whatsoever)

    Moisture. Something isnt sealed up that should be. Probably near the MAF or the PCM.

    could be as simple as the air filter. water is getting in to the ditributor cap maybe.

    Re: Car doesn't start in rain

    is there a dizzy cap on these? Thinking theirs probably coil packs...but i might be wrong as a i dont know hondas very well. Water is getting somewhere it shouldn't, something is broke or not tight. air filter is a great place to start...

    Re: Car doesn't start in rain

    My suggestion would be the same as above, cover your full car with a sheet of paper and then check out the leakage problem.

    Re: Car doesn't start in rain

    You have most of your ignition under the distributor cap on that Honda. Next time it gives you trouble look in there for moisture. Inside you will find 3 different pickups, an ignition module, the ignition coil and the rotor.

    Re: Car doesn't start in rain

    when it's dry- start the car open the hood and spray the engine compartment w. a soap and water solution. Where you see sparks that my friend is where the problem is. Maybe an ignition coil or spark plug wire may be at fault. try that first- if there's no spark bring it to the mechanic

    change the distributor cap and rotor check the wires and plugs. If it still happens then u need a distributor.
