1998 jeep Cherokee sport, stalls in heavy rains

by Pepperdogjeep / March 24, 2016 8:23 AM PDT

I am a mom that's had a 1998 Jeep Cherokee Sport new, and has now passed it on to my daughter. Last year when there were heavy rains it seemed to stall often, I had someone try changing spark plugs & a new battery and it's happening again now that winter's over and spring rains are becoming heavy and sopping. It has 172k miles and until two years ago it was garage kept, now I have no garage. She tried driving home last night in the rain and it stalled three times on her. It's a sturdy little jeep, I've always gotten regular oil changes on her. I don't want my daughter to worry and I want her safe. Any suggestions or has this happened to anyone else? I don't want to get screwed at a mechanic who can tell I clearly don't know much about vehicles.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
