We have a 1994 Golf Mk3 (1.4 petrol, 120k miles) as a second car and it really doesn't like getting wet!!
Have had problems in the past, for example when driving through big puddles the car would just cut out completely and would then need to be left to dry before it would start again. Took it to the garage, they said something about "damp starting", and apparently fixed the problem. This was 5 or so years ago.
The problem did improve, but never seemed to go away and has recently got worse. So much so that now whenever it rains, the car simply won't start. It needs to have a good 24 hours of dry weather before it will then start again.
Engine turns over fine, just doesn't fire up. Anyone know what could be causing the problem (and don't say "water"!). As in what specific component(s) it is that may be getting damp and therefore affecting the car starting up? Once the car does start it runs fine.
