Default cold or rainy= kinda no start

when it is cold or rainy out my dodge wont start unless i mess with all the wires by the coil is there any common problems with these truck its a 99 ram sport 5.9l and this is the second time it has done it in the week i've owned it. what it seems like is it floods out and cant light all the fuel off because i have to go into clear flood and hold it wide open to get it to start.


btw im not a dodge guy and i know why now

My 2000 5.9 did that, the plug wires would get their insulation cracked and would short to the block. It'd rough start and misfire when cold and damp out.

Yep... Same problem here with the 5.9...

While your at it do a full tune up. Can't hurt

Plugs
Wires
Cap
Rotor
Coil

I hate to jump in here, but I did all of the above to my 5.9 and it is still not wanting to start on wet or cold days. Mine is a 97
