Default Here's a snow day problem to watch out for

With our blizzard conditions yesterday we ended up with 13" of snow. I
know, it's nothing like what New York has seen but with the 40 mph winds, it
was enough to create a problem I 've never experienced, so thought I'd pass
it along. Yesterday, the CRV was running like a champ until it sat for five
hours outside, in the blowing crap. When I drove to the store it started
missing, just like it ran last year when a fuel injector died. Finally got
to check it out this afternoon. There was some snow in the engine
compartment, but nothing I could see that was touching any wires or getting
in the way of any belts, etc. But I found water under the plug boot in hole
for plug number one. The hole was about half full. Plenty, I'm sure to
short out that wire. I guess the boot wasn't seated well enough around the
hole to keep the blowing snow out. It then melted and that's all she wrote!
Dried it out and replaced the plug wires. She runs great again!
Dave
