Wifey's Pat had an episode on tuesday down here, though I thought it was probably spark plug wires, I learned that Pats don't have that setup.
We had 5" of rain on tuesday, and the Pat has original plugs at 45k miles....my fault. So we ran the codes and nothing popped up, so we replaced the plugs.
My hope is that it is not the coil insulator, as rain has a way of showing you electrical issues. Always worked for my GCs, but things change, don't they.
So, yes, if it was wet you probably have some grounding going on. Our Pat charged through all the missing, as we would have expected.
Our Riot will be 5 in March, this is the frist issue of any kind. Brakes next week, our baby has four rotors, and our new service shop has offered to do all four original pads and cut the rotors for $317. Not bad! Tires are next.
It is dry season down here in SoFLA, so I hope we can put our episode behind us. I'll update if this happens again. YUP, maybe it was gas, the tank was low. I'm getting some gas treatment/fuel infector fluid also.
Any insight would be welcomed.
