View Full Version : Car runs like **** in the rain
05-23-2004, 12:14 AM
Whenever it rains hard, my cars seems to want to stall and chug and carry on all the time when I let off the throttle or idle. It does it a little bit while I am driving steady. I have a CAI with a Ractive cone. It is unlike the K&N where you have to oil it. Any ideas what my problem could be? Maybe it could be the cone getting moisture in it?

if you think its the intake, try replacing it back to stock.

I would ditch the ractive cone and get a K&N cone filter. If the problem persists, then maybe it is the intake.

I had a similar problem with my dodge dakota . Try changing your spark plug wires and maybe your plugs . The truck ran great after that.

I betting it's the filter.

My car sounds like I got a new exhaust when it rains hard and I only have the stock exhaust. It gets much louder. Something is not right. What's wrong here?

I would start with the wires and coils. When its rains, there is a lot of humidity in the air and will cause condensation on the coils. Maybe try some dielectric grease on the coils?
