Re: [DML] Poor ignition when wet

Hi Rich,

I used to live in a condo with outdoor parking as well.

The symptoms you describe are exactly what would happen to me when it  
was time for a tune up.

I have used dielectric grease on other contacts in the electrical  
system but never the plugs.  I suspect that it would cause more harm  
than good for the ignition system.

As I understand it, dielectric grease is used to limit or stop  
corrosion on an electrical connector.  I don't think it would help to  
put it on the wires themselves.
