I'm having a problem with my 97 jetta gl starting on rainy mornings. If it rains plenty the night before my car will not start. The engine will turn but it just does not start. Its happened to me a few times now and it turned off on me once going home from work on a rainy day. Has anyone had this problem? It starts fine when its cold and dry outside though.

We've got a 97 GL (no engine mods) that also struggles in the wet until it's up to temp. Not sure what it is yet. Has new distro/wires/plugs.

No doubt plug wires or coil.

make sure your coil pack is not getting water in it. my car had the same issue and my dad sealed it with something, i think it was silicon. anyway no more problems with water/rain/puddles.
