Engine Performance problem
2003 Chevy Malibu 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 86000 miles
I have this problem where the engine gets much louder, yet at a lower pitch whenever I come into a heavy/hard rain while driving. This is the only time this occurs, and after I get out of that area of heavy rain, it stops. There is no difference in the RPM reading, nothing visibly occurring with the electrical system, and the "Check Engine" light does not pop on.
This has been a regular occurrence over the course of the last year. I have taken it to the mechanics at different dealerships who have either thrown their hands up, or want to see the car in the exact conditions. I do regular maintenance, I have had the serpentine belt replaced, and the pulleys inspected (due to my complaint on this problem) during the course of this continuing problem.
have the same problem?
