Default I have a 1995 GMC Jimmy and when it rains my car won't start. When the sun is out...'s okay. What could be the problem? Sometimes after the rain it won't start for 2 or 3 day. Help!

It is either the distributor or spark plug wires.

it could also be the coil, i had the same problem but it only lasted about 5-7 hrs not 2-3 days, i changed the plugs and wires and distributor cap and it still wouldnt start when raining, but i changed the coil and it solved all my problems.
