No problem when fine, but when it starts to rain it is a nightmare. I can start the car when it rains but after I've drove the car, if its only down the road, it seems to get wet and won't start. It needs to dry out for about half hour and then the car will start up again only to do the same thing again if its raining.

2007 Chevy Cobalt, automatic, runs awful ONLY in heavy rain, NO code When driving in heavy rain or if driving through standing water on roadways, my Cobalt will start making a roaring noise (almost like the noise that a car with a big muffler makes) and seems to drag and not accelerate well.

I have a '92.5 Mazda Navajo. Lately, I have been having intermittent cold start problems. Sometimes, I can move or adjust the contacts on the battery points to get good starts for a while. This morning, I went out to start it up and it wouldn't turn over. I tried moving around the contacts, but still no start. I'm getting full electrical inside the truck. My battery is of high quality (Les Schwab 65 60mo) and not that old, 3yrs, maybe. The contacts and posts are free of corrosion and other debri

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, maybe to dry out?

Cold start girlfriend tried to start this morning. cold and wet morning on Aug 31. I had to crank to get it to kick over and hold the throttle up to 1500 for several minutes, then it ran just fine. I suspect a choke issuel, but know nothing about cars. Is this a simple fix? Also, new warning on the dash. A triangle with an ( ! ) in the center and a counter clockwise circle/arrow around it. It is a used car with 86,000 miles. once she got to highway it ran fine.
