Default Humidity?

Que pasa... 1990 Camry LE, 4cyl, auto, 175 000kms. (Rainy day) The car
stalled for the first 20 minutes of driving when I accelarated from stop.
It also "bucked" when the auto tranny downshifted to accelarate. After 20
minutes or so it was fine.

I had an 89 Camry LS before this one with 350 000+ kms(same engine and all)
that had the same problem in wet or humid conditions and the problem was
solved PARTIALLY after I had it tuned up...(plugs, cap, wires, gas
filter...) It just did it less but still did.
Any ideas, thanks

Default Re: Humidity?

Common of a bad coil or ignition wires. Coils on 90s go bad,
distributors leak oil on the coil shorting it just as it warms up fully
on humid days, then after 15-45 minutes they dry out and all is OK till
tomorrow morning. Check to see cap is not loose. If wires and cap are
old you could start there. My wires only failed when car got fully warm,
it missed on one cilinder located by pulling the wires off one by one.
My wires were aftermarket. For electrical parts especialy pay the extra
money for Toyota. Also for thermostats most aftermarket are pure junk.
