Re: 4ks Doesn't like Rain

Before you start the car in wet weather next time, take a look under the
hood. There could be water dripping where it shouldn't, this happened on one
of my 5Ks. There was a small twig that wedged itself between the hood and
the weather stripping on the firewall thereby directing a steady stream of
rain water onto the distributer. I suppose water could drain into a cracked
air-box and soak the filter too. A quick look around is easy and it
shouldn't hurt anything.
Drive fast,
