When problem is ongoing, if it cranks good but won't start, have a helper crank it while you visually check for spark at the spark plugs. If you have spark everywhere, use a gage and check proper fuel pressure and injector pulse. Try to figure out what your missing, fuel--spark--whatever. Go from there.

Did you replace distributor cap and rotor ? Could be getting moisture under cap when weather is damp.

A 94 2.2L doesn't have a distributor.

Yes, I know, but, I don't figure it's my job to correct other people. I try to give my answer and move on. Maybe I'm wrong, but, it wouldn't be the first time. I'm just an old-timer.

No a lot but not everything do not mind being corrected when I am wrong. Is that not how we learn different things.

It's called learning.

My bad. Some people don't like being corrected? I haven't been here very long, I just try to leave everybody alone. Have a good day. I didn't mean for my post to sound grumpy, I hadn't had my morning coffee, yet.

No need to apologize but I do agree with you some people do not like to be corrected. Definitely not one of them like I said that is how you learn.
