Misfire, hesitancy after rain or inactivity
Red Dust ('89 350 tbi Sportside) is showing following symptoms:
If not driven for a few days (or even one day if it rains or is very moist) the truck starts fine and runs ok for appr. 10 - 15 mins. but after that starts to hesitate and misfire (or idle speed starts to wary from very low to higher than normal). This continues for some time. Finally heals itself and does not happen again untill the next longer period of rest.
Any ideas on what might be the problem, some sensor packing up or some moisture related problem somewhere?

Well if it does it after its warmed up it does sound like a sensor. I assume there is no check engine light on. Only thing I can think of is hook up a scanner and read the live data. Good luck

I believe that the 89's being tbi have the knock sensor, and with moisture it can cause an incorrect reading. Just a thought.

have you changed plug wires? The easiest way to tell, if it is moisture related, is to take a squirt bottle and mist over the plug wires, suspect sensors, etc, until you get it to act up. just make sure not to hit the dist.1986 Chevy G20 Tow Rig - 5.7 TBI conversion
