87 22re (<10K miles engine) won't turn over in rain
My 22re (with a new engine) has stopped wanting to turn over after rainstorms. Mechanic suggested it MIGHT be the 'ignitor' (aka ignition module?) but was going to charge me $600 to replace it. I ordered the part for $200 and did it myself. It ran fine until the rains came back this last night.
Aside from the fuel pump (which is prob original) could it be the Mass Air Filter (not sure they replaced that/cleaned it when they replaced the engine)? Could it be the coil the ignition module sits on?
It cranks, just does not turn over when it has rained (hard) and I am not proficient enough to do the whole checking spark by attaching battery to a plug thing.
O, and the lights/speedometer/odometer on the dashboard are not working too. So check engine relay is not an option. Hapless in Durham
Would be grateful for a lead!
Thanks in advance!
