Question about 1997 Saturn SL
In the mornings i can turn my motor over and it starts fine. but after i drive it to the store its always flooded when i turn the motor over after shopping.
Fel pressure regulator is bad, I'm sure. When you Turn off the car, pressure remains in the injector rail. The diaphram in the regulator allows that pressure to enter the engine through the vacuum line that controls it, and floods the engine. I am 99.9% sure this is your problem

to unflood your engine you can just leave it alone overnight or take out the spark plugs and dry them off yourself but be sure to label your wires. if it is fuel injected you dont need to push the gas pedal to start it. as far as it not starting it could be its either not getting a spark or not getting any fuel you can check for a spark with a spark tester found at auto parts stores and to check for fuel they have a tester for that as well which if faulty will lead to fuel filter and or pump replacement if no spark then it could be the coil or plugs

SOURCE: '98 SL2 Saturn Traction Control
Traction control helps limit tire slip in acceleration on slippery surfaces. In the past you had to feather the gas pedal to prevent the drive wheels from spinning wildly on slippery pavement. Many of today's vehicles employ electronic controls to limit power delivery for the driver, eliminating wheel slip and helping the driver accelerate under control. Don't turn it off.

SOURCE: 98 Saturn SL2 - Stalling issues
The 5 volt reference circuit provides a signal voltage to the linear EGR, MAP sensor, and TP sensor. The return line is grounded through the PCM. DTC P1635 detects a short to ground in any of the 3, 5 volt reference circuits or inside the PCM.
Conditions for Setting the DTC
The 5 volt reference is monitored whenever the ignition is ON.
DTC P1635 will set if the 5 volt reference signal is below 3.5 volts or above 5.5 volts. This voltage is monitored internally by the PCM.
If DTCs P0563, P0108, P1106, P0452, P0453, P1122, or P0122 are set, a short to B+ on the 5 volt reference circuit is probable. If the short exists while attempting to diagnose, PDT communications will be lost and driveability conditions will exist.
