Sputtering! Idling speed up and down? Won't start 1st time(always did)

After a weekend of heavy rain, it's started misbehaving, once I've started it, it'll be ok then it just starts struggling to tickover(drops to just under 1000) then it'll bounce back up to normal?
I've cleaned the plugs and sprayed all wiring, .
Any ideas please before I take it to a dealer.
Many thanks.
Rich

Greetings, glad to find someone on here. I'm guessing the problem started, and was caused by, rain and moisture. I believe you're correct by thinking the ignition system is the problem, but that's only an educated guess on both our parts. I'd assume you used something like WD40 to spray the sparkplug wires, all the way back as far as you can towards the coil end. That's the only type spray that's made to disperse moisture. A few dry days, helped with an oscillating fan if it's possible, could do the trick. Unless you're in a hurry, I'd try to wait it out a few days, but if that doesn't help, a mechanic may be in order. Good Luck
Steve
