when it rains my 97 Jetta runs bad
Not all the time but when it rains, my 97 Jetta GLX VR6 runs like it's missing a cylinder. Usually happens if the rain is heavy. The engine light also goes on and stays on until a day or two after the rain. The engine eventually runs fine. I suspect it could be the ignition coil getting wet but wanted know if anyone else has had similar experiences. If so, how can I fix this problem.
you have the right idea with the ignition coil...thats what i would suspect because i left my hood open in the middle of a snow storm and it barely idled the next day...just cleaned up the contacts and dryed the coil and its worked fine since

it is the ignition coil. to test spray a little water on it from a water bottle with the car running.
