    I drive a 1992 Honda Prelude Si, after it rains my car wont start for a good long while. i cant drive to much in the rain cuz if I hit a puddle the car slows down when i push on the gas untill it dies out. Any help is appreciated. ITS ALWAYS RAINING IN FLORIDA!!!

    Hey, i had the same issue with my older CRX. The problem was a scratch on the distributor cap - after the rain the spark was shorting outside of the cap... make sure your distributor is dry and maybe replace it. I used to kill my battery before the car starts in the wet weather... Good luck

    yea def. a dizzy problem...and what kind of intake is on the car??
    stock,short ram or long ram???
    if its a long ram then you need to get a bypass...becuz the water is being sucked into the motor
