Try unplugging the alternator and see if it still floods. I have seen this before where the alt causes interference with the computer and floods vehicle. Also check the ground cable from battery to engine make sure it is tight

Bad cam shaft senser


You could have a faulty engine coolant sensor or intake air temperature sensor. Fuel injectors clogged or dirty flooding engine.
Clean fuel injectors, replace fuel filter and air filter, and see if the problem persists.
If it does ECT sensor is bad. If CMP sensor was bad, the vehicle won\'t start whether cold or hot. CKP senso and CMP sensor work together if either one fails, the vehicle won\'t start. Have the vehicle code scanned.

Ford taurus 2001 car start but once the car is cut off it won't start up again until it cools off the car is not running hot.


After you kill it, when you try to start it back up, does the starter turn the motor? Or is it froze up (will not turn over)?

I have a 94 mustang with an electric fan. The fan works perfectly when i start the car and its cold. when the temp of the water gets up to about 185 the fan kicks on . it can idle all day and the fan works...


is the car running hot? some cooling fans never come on going down the road because the air comjng through the front of the vehicle keeps the car cool enough that it doesn't need to come on. but if it is overheating then you may want to check the cooling fan relay.

On my 1993 ford mustang Lx 4 cyl,if I drive car turn-off and after 25 minutes try to start car will crank ,but won't start and if I don't hold ignition key until it start it won't start unless I hold down...


It can be anything - throttle adjustment, burnt out spark plugs, clogged fuel filter(honestly not common and really just a reason to replace it xD), or a worn out fuel pump.
First check the throttle/idle setting if it's fine, then the wires leading to the throttle body and air sensors, also the wires leading to the fuel pump.
also check if there isn't too much oil in the air filter's box or anywhere the engine vent's hoses lead.

Engine cuts out immediately after starting,wont even at least rough idle before engine cuts out. Sometimes you have to go through hard starting before the engine starts then cuts out. It doesnt happen when...


I don't know the model year? Key on engine off, use a gage and check proper fuel pressure. Then with key off, see if pressure holds for a bit? If it drops like a rock, check for a fuel pressure leak. If the engine is hot and trying to flood for some reason, your going to have a tough time. Any applicable trouble codes? Check your coolant temp sensor, only if testing leads in that direction.
Smell of your crankcase oil dipstick, does it smell like gas?
