...Sorta.

It's been raining very lightly... misting almost all morning. Leaving work about an hour ago, key in the car just cranks and cranks and no start. Finally after about 2 mins it cranks, turns over normally and starts. No CEL, runs fine drove like 15 miles home without a hiccup. Think it was just a random thing or should I take a look at anything to be sure.

Plug wires (more likely the coil wire), or coil. When it's dark out have somebody crank it over & watch for where the spark-show is.

It wasnt an opti problem. Moisture has to be getting into your coil or associated wires. Clean, grease, and tape. Trust me.

Ah.. thought it was the opti. Anyways... I'll check the plugs and wires. I bought new ones last month so might as just replace them now.

Might want use some dielectric grease on your wires to prevent moisture from getting in to disrupt current.
