Wet days

Hey all, question I feel like I should ask some experts:

On days when it's been real wet (we're talking downpour for several hours) or when it's been drizzling for a few days, my 97 TJ tends to stall really easily--it chugs like a train up until about 1500rpms, then acts normal. If I give it just a TINY bit too much gas (we're talking a difference of millimeters on the accelerator here) it stalls out. It's difficult to drive for a minute or so, then seems to calm down a bit.

I assume this is because of moisture buildup on the spark plug/plug wires, so I'm going to go get a new batch of plug wires real soon--but I just wanted to make sure. Anyone have any insights?

Your distributor is probably getting wet, go check it for any cracks or anything that might let water in.

I agree. It sounds like the dist cap is getting moisture in it. Maybe it isn't seated correctly, or is cracked or loose.
