It seems every time I try to start the car cold during or after it has rained it cranks and cranks, sometimes sputtering and stumbling until it finally starts and runs normally afterward. It acts like it's not getting a spark due to moisture shorting out some ignition component, I have no idea how the moisture can reach the affected component when the hood is down and latched ! After the car does start there is no further incident even after multiple starts and stops. Unfortunately my car has to be out in all kinds of weather because I live in an apartment. The car is parked on a level paved lot. This started happening about 2 yrs ago in the winter usually after it has snowed. At first it would stumble, but start, but now it sometimes takes multiple tries before it does start. Thank you
have the same problem?
