Why does she hate the rain?
I've got a 1987 325 bmw that really doesn't
like the rain. In a light rain she's fine, or
even if she was running first, but in a heavy
rain, or if I'd been training a few days she'll
start to sputter and won't accelerate. She
also idles hard. When she decides her hissy
fit is over (after sitting or running about a
mile) she feels like she kicks into gear and
idles normal. I've changed the rotor button,
distributor cap, and spark plugs. Even put
a liquid gasket on the cap. Any ideas why
she does this?
I have not since they're $115 at auto zone for my car. But I have been planning on it, have a few things to replace first. I've also heard it could be due to an oxygen sensor getting water on an exposed line. I know one of mine is disconnected. Do you think that could have anything to do with it? I'm not extremely car savvy. I'm learning as mine fall apart!
Now that I think about it. One of em did go on a lot easier than the other 5.
Yeah. My dash doesn't work! XD except the odometer! Me and my dad are going to deal with that come spring probably. I'll definately try and find a cheaper set online to work with for now! Thanks for the quick response!
I do love em. But the next car I get I want to be a newer model. I'm planning road trips out of state and want something I can fully trust. I had an 02 Galant blow up on me after a trip to Pennsylvania. I know it's service, not year that matters, but I get anxious over stuff like that.
