Linda (Camden, Maine) - 1987 Toyota Tercel
A starting question. Won't start after it sits overnight in a pouring rain, unless she blows a hairdryer on the distributor. Got new wires, husband has seen arcing over the distributor. Problem is a crack in the distributor cap--when water get in, spark gets grounded before it gets to the engine. Get a new cap and rotor, and problem should be solved.
