When it'* humid my truck refuses to start on the first try. I let it sit for 15 minutes and it starts right up! What on earth could be causing this?? I appreciate any input!

My 2000 Blazer runs like crap when its real humid.

Try spraying the inside of your distributor cap with WD-40, shake out the excess and reinstall.

The 5.7 in my S10 hasn't done that yet.

Thanks Mike! I'll try this for sure! It does it very seldom but when it does I will try it!
