95 Buick LeSabre No Start When Wet

Hi,

I have a 95 Buick LeSabre which will not start when wet. If left overnight in the rain, it will not start in the morning. Also, on the fair weather days, it runs kinda crappy as well, missing on the highway etc. New plugs, wires, fuel pump. No check engine light on. Assume it is getting fuel because of the smell after cranking for a while. Hopefully someone can straighten me out...otherwise to the junkyard it goes!

Thanks,
Klaus

OK Thanks...

As you know there are 3 coil packs and a module which they sit on top of. Would you shotgun everything or is there an EASY to troublshoot? When running, the coilpacks appear to firing properly...or at least produce a spark, unknown as to whether it is strong enough.

Thanks,
Chris

if you get a shop manual for it, it should show what the resistance should be when you check the coils....
