Frequently in older vehicles, high humidity or rainy weather can cause poor performance, usually because of a problem in the ignition system.

That problem is aggravated by moisture and humidity.

What would cause a 1994 Buick Century to misfire and sputter?

You can check the battery connector. Make sure they are not corroded; and see if there isn't any melting on it; sometimes it will startup but drive rough, make sure the the connection is tight. Also I think platinum spark plugs come standard on some Buicks, which have a very small electrode and a little gunk will cause them to misfire; I would swapped them for a set of old champion copper plus spark plugs and a new set of spark plug wires.

What can cause sputtering in a 2002 ford explorer?

My 2002 V6 XLT started to sputter after driving to the parts store. I could feel and hear the idle was off and when I would push down on the accelerator I could feel the sputter struggle of the engine. Also when I drove it home it would sputter while stopped at lights and accelerating. I ended up cleaning my MAF also looked at changing the coil, but I wanted to check my plug wires and found a leak in #3 plug wire where I had a P0303 code (#3 cylinder misfire). I changed my plug wires for $35 (Napa) and it runs great! I wanted to add a picture of where the leak is on the old #3 plug wire, it was about 7in from plug boot, it is the only abnormal color on the wire.

What makes a car sputter?

A malfunctioning battery can't provide enough power to your ignition system when the motor is idling can cause sputtering. If there is not enough gas, that can cause your vehicle to sputter. If the spark plugs fail to fire will also cause your vehicle to sputter.

Why does your car sputter only when it starts to get hot outside?

sounds like a ignition breaking down from heat, scan codes good change ther is a cylinder misfire code. if plugs are old and have excessive gap this causes coils to work harder to jump a big gap the bigger the gap the coil has to produce more voltage a heat causing overload on coil
