When you say Hard .start do you mean the engine does not CRANK well like the battery is Dead? Or....the engine cranks over well but will not Fire Up....START. Any warning lights ..on or flashing?

Is your fuse cover off underneath the good or can the rain or moisture get to any eclectic components or have you recently driven through any large amount of water and did white smoke come out tailpipe before all of the rain


Is the coolant (antifreeze) level low?
