I have a 2000 chevy Blazer, it won't start....is getting fuel & spark. seems to happen every time it rains, and after sitting for 2-3 days with sunny weather, then it starts & runs fine until the next time it rains or drizzles at night........then next morning, won't start again.
has happened 3 or 4 times now.....each time it was raining the night before. What should I check?

Expert:  Tim's Auto Repair replied 1 year ago.

when it doesnt start,will it start with a prime?with starting fluid or a little fuel in the throttle body?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I have not replaced anything yet. However, the fuel pump was replaced a couple of months ago. It does have spark, but will not start when primed with starting fluid. from what I can tell, it seems to be getting fuel.
Expert:  Tim's Auto Repair replied 1 year ago.

ok

if you do have a spark and it wont fire up with a prime..

i would think your problem is the distributor cap,these vortec caps can just go bad on the inside where they are wormed ,i have had many of these caps bad,new right out of the box
