    I ended up replacing the cowl, which was crack around the bolt hasten.Water was dripping onto the head/ plugs causing a rough ride in rain storms.

    I have this problem since I bought the car but never mentioned it because it doesn't rain a lot in Arizona.
    Everytime it rains or when I go through the car wash it's like the engine want to stop running.
    But now I am worried since the car is getting older. I guess when it rains I shouldn't drive.
