Car will not start for a day to three days after it rains, what do you recommend

Asked by Feb 19, 2017 at 02:47 PM about the 1994 Mazda 929 4 Dr STD Sedan

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Car will not start for a day to three days after it rains, what
do you recommend?   It cranks like a monster, but will not
engage. It feels like something is getting wet but I don't
know what it is. After a dries out the car starts again and
runs fine. However, sometimes I have to wait for days. at
first I thought the start it was going bad, but once
whatever is getting wet dries out it's fine again.   Any
suggestions ?

Check your distributor cap and all of your spark plug wire connections. I have had a badly fitted or cracked distributor cap cause the issue you are describing.
