    I had experienced difficulty starting on damp and rainy mornings. I took it to my local repair shop with whom I've done business for several years. They ran a diagnostic and the read out came back aas this problem with either or both the camshaft sensor and the crankshaft sensor. Looking for pricing on its repair at this point.
