My 2004 Alero has a problem when it rains. It won't start after it was rained and it seems to me that something is getting wet under the hood and causing this that I have to let it sit after it rains,...


I doubt anything is getting wet, but you could be right on a bad connection. You could have enough humidity in the air after a rain to cause a weak connection to fail completely. It could also be a faulty relay.
Someone would need to figure out if you are lacking spark to the plugs or fuel pressure when it fails to start, then track down why.

If the engine cranks but won't start, someone will need to figure out if you are lacking fuel to the injectors or spark to the plugs to proceed with diagnosis.

I have 85 rx7 12a engine carb getting spark and fuel,it will turn but it won't start what could it be.


It takes 3 things for a car to run... spark, fuel, and air. Sounds like you should be looking for a problem with the air, IF it is getting spark and fuel. Food for thought.

My 1991 jetta won't start,,,fuel pump good,,,getting spark,,,,plugs are wet when I check them after trying to start,,,,injectors ohm good,,,any ideas?


If the plugs are wet, it may be flooded. Try leaving the plugs out until they dry, then, reinstall and try again.

2001 ford taurus with the 3.0 after sitting a few hours when i go to start will crank and crank and crank for what seems like ever, will start easily after that but when i go to start it for the first time...


Its not the oil, increasing temperature will thin out the oil. If it cranks easily but won't start it could be the spark plugs or the spark plug wires. When they heat up, especially if they are old, they won't perform well. Pull off one of the wires and hold it close to the plug, try to crank the engine and look for a spark. If it sparks them try removing a plug and check to see if it looks wet. If its bone dry it might not be getting fuel.

Will not start.Fuel pump sounds like its working, car turns over but will not fire into life. had same problem in the winter but fixed itself.


Sounds more like an intermittent problem has become permanent, nothing ever fixes itself. You are going to have to start by figuring out whether it is lack of fuel or spark. Pull a plug out and see if it is dry or wet with gas. If it is wet then you have fuel coming into the chamber. Have someone turn the ignition key while a wire connected spark plug is held down touching the engine block. DANGER WILL ROBINSON CHANCE OF SHOCK. Do not use yourself as an electrical path from the plug to the block. If you see a spark jumping across the little gap on the tip of the plug, then you have spark. If no fuel most likely you are looking at a fuel pump or pressure regulator, if no spark an ignition module or computer. This can become very expensive very quickly. I would spend a hundred at a dealer getting a diagnosis before I spent dollar one on parts. If you scroll through these queries you will find many, many situations where folks have spent hundreds replacing good parts with new parts and have yet to stumble upon the bad part.
