Will start, but floods out and won't run


wow, great post, (no location stated sadly,you in Nunavut?)
floods, a clear hard piece of evidence. bravo, and helps...
fuel soaked spark plugs.
if tuned up and , compression is 150,psi not 90 x4.
and spark is strong, then and only then is it a fueling problem.

ill assume you read the op guide and used the unflood method/
stated in glove box manual?
no, then use WOT TO START THE ENGINES.
wot, wide open throttle, (yes, right foot to floor)
this act cuts all fuel injections. and must start
if not , no spark.
if the egr is leaking , it will be hard to start, do the 50k service on it.
if the ISC is stuck closed, it will be hard to start and flood (no air)
so use just 10% throttle , acting as sort of a human ISC
start now?
that is just the tip of ice berg.
here is more flooding.
all ways, i think are here

check the color of your spark if it is blue your good if orange replace coil dependig on your setup and if you have 1 coild or 8 coils you many have to check each cylinder seperate just pull out spark plug replace the spark plug wire have someone try to start car and lood at color of spark i should note dont hold the wire just let it rest close by

if that is ok replace your crankshaft postion sensor as it tells the cars ecu when and to what cylinder to fire spark to faulty crankshaft postion sensors 99 percent of the time wont allow car to start or very hard starts the other 1 percent

if it helps please leave good review 4 thumbs

Is it flooding the cylinder? or is the spark plug not firing? Those engines are notorious for bad coils and/or coil control modules.

Car was working fine today and then when ready to go home from work, it started to turn over, but acted like it was not getting fuel, or was flooded or no spark..Is there an inline fuel filter that might...


IF THE CAR FEEL LIKE IT goes to start and does not. problem is the starter switch.
you can check if the coil spark plug wire is connected ok/
try using a spray fluid starter use it on intake air in at the some time you try to start . if it start and turns off the problem is the fuel pump

94 chevrolet lumina idles good but when you are driving it acts like it wants to die like it isnt getting enough fuel when you come to a stop it wants to die too starts right back up


Hi! As a first course of action please do check the spark plugs. You may have fuel flooding and a faulty spark plugs can't burn the fuel. Have the spark plugs replaced and plug wires for better fuel burning. Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa!

I change the spark plug and after starte to shake ann act weir and check engine light came on


Did you gap the spark plugs, or did any of the spark plug wires get damage while removing them, or did a spark plug wire get crossed,the engine light is most likely a cylinder misfire, I would check or replace spark plug wire's.

Check that the Idle air controller is not faulty, disconnect it and start the truck again, if the truck starts (running poorly) then replace the IAC.
