Don't run engine. Loss of power can be from washed out cylinders from gas bath. Friction also increases and engine will seize.

Check fuel pressure at fuel rail for excess pressure. Dirty injectors can fail to close. They put a pressure gauge on system and then check for a bleed down.

You can borrow some tools from big autoparts chains.

Drain oil and change filter. Temperature controls on engine can fail and keep engine too rich.

Will a carb rebuild fix this?

the float needle and seat is the first obvious fault
next if a holley, is the power valve has a hole in the diaphragm
next is wrong pressure from the pump ( add a fuel pressure regulator)
best have the caby overhauled by an accredited carby specialist shop because it is very easy to miss the exact reason for the flooding and be back in the situation where you are now

Gas getting in the oil and doesn't want to move no power

What kind of vehicle? The engine is flooding if fuel is entering the oil. You may have 1 or more cylinders not firing properly causing lack of power and the unburned fuel will contaminate the oil

Tries to start but floods plugs

Do you mean it fouls the plugs with oil or does your engine flood with gas? If the plugs are involved you will need to clean them up really good and make sure they are gapped properly, or just buy a set of new ones. Check to see if you smell a large quantity of gas in the oil. If you do then give it an oil change.

Tried to start toyota sienna xle, barely started then suddenly *poof* shut off. Flutters as it if wants to start, but won't turn over. Husband pumped the gas (after I told him not too worried he'd flood...

Check the oil, the low oil sensor will disable the ignition if more than a quart low. When on vacation (touring) , check oil often. Pumping the gas pedal with modern fuel injection will not flood the engine, it does not work that way.

1992 F150 5.0 flooded

Hi, wow!

sounds bad, I would drain the oil and leave it over night to drip out so it is completely dry, leave all oil caps an anything that will allow air in off the truck.

Do you have a compressor or air line you could use to blast air through the engine. if this is diesel fuel then it will take much longer to evaporate if this is gas/petrol then over night should do it.

Hope this helps

I think there is gas in my oil

The cause of gas in the oil may be several things. If the engine floods all the time or has flooded. If you have trouble starting it in the morning and fuel goes into the oil sump. If your truck has a carburator the needle is probably bad. In any case, have youe engine checked. gas in the oil is not good. Change the oil and filter. If it continues take the truck to a good mechanic that you can trust..

Cant get started

if you say it is getting gas and is firing take spark plugs out it is probably flooded replace them with new plugs before re installing them let the spark plugs stay out for a hour so gas that is in cylinders may evaporate! and if you did flood it pull dip stick if strong gas odour is present you might want to change the oil most times when flooded all the gas runs down in crank case polluting the oil badly smart to change it once you get it running again good luck.
