Default Weird starting

I HAVE A 95 FORD RANGER 3.0 6 CYL. WHEN I START IT IN FOR THE FIRST TIME EXPECIALLY IN THE MORNING OF A RAINY DAY IT RUNS AND GETS ROUGH AND THE VOLT METER GOES DOWN LIKE IT WANTS TO TUN OFF. JUST REPACED THE ALTENATOR CHANGED THE PLUGS AND CHANGED THE OIL. COULD THERE BE ANOTHER REASON FOR THE ROUGH START? I WAS THINKING THAT IT HAS TO SOMETHING WITH THE MOUISTURE IN THE AIR IF ANYBODY HAS ANY IDEAS I WOULD LOVE TO HEAR THEM THANKS RANGER DUDES

Any dtc's? if you do not have any diagnostic trouble codes I would start out by changing out the battery cables ( the whole cable not just the posts) and cleaning out the idle air control valve. those are more of a maintenance issue on an older vehicle however can be linked to voltage type and hard starting and rough idling cases.

How do your battery terminals look? Possibly corrosion in the battery cables also. Try to clean the terminals and/or battery cables.
