Misfire and sluggish sound only in RAIN!!

I was driving my 97 v6, and it started misfiring and skipping on the highway. I noticed it only happens in the rain. It even shuts off sometimes and throw smoke from the pipes. Any suggestions people??

Agreed, check the air filter and surrounding areas. Water could be getting in it

if its not the air filter, check for a bad wire connecting to a cam sensor on the bottom somewhere. could be messing with your timing.

but while checking your filter, check your MAF sensor, and make sure water or vapor isnt hitting it.
