1995 Chevy Sonoma 2.2L 5 Speed ... Moisture Problem ?!?

Asked by Oct 04, 2013 at 01:39 PM about the 1995 Chevrolet S-10

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Everytime it seems to rain, or even just the morning due... my truck misfires. I can barely even get it to start going without stalling it. It sounds like a Subaru, and it is very hard to drive. After driving it for a while or just letting it sit for a bit then driving it again it will be fine... HELP !!!

When was the last time the plug wires were changed?

They have been changed twice now ! once last year and recently about 2 months ago !

spark plugs and wires were both changed actually

If the Cap and Rotor appear good try wrapping the distributor in a large plastic bag after it has been running good and then see if it acts up again in a high moisture environment. You might check the seals for the wiring at the distributor, check for any exposed wiring especially those around the injectors.

Sounds like a crack or improperly seated distributer cap? Let us know what you find out, ok?

There is no distributer cap in my truck though. It has two coil packs

Sorry, I was looking at the wrong year for your truck... ! On the 95' for this problem several factors may exist... 1. Bad gas or moisture in the gas tank.. 2. Vacuum leak... 3. Check for a clogged air filter... 4. Check the in-line gas filter. 4. Add a bottle of fuel injector/carb cleaner to the gas tank...(After this, I think you did everything else right with wires, plugs, etc.) Let us know, ok?

Have you had the codes checked? Check coil output, you may have one that is weak. Also check the crank postilion sensor and wiring.
