You may have a bad connection or bad coolant temperature sensor. If so it will pour fuel to it. It is located on the coolant pipe on the front of the engine right on top. Hope this helps.

The module in the distributor can cause this,also the coolant sensor,check the injector harness wires.

When you replaced the pressure regulator under the upper plenum did you notice any fuel puddling in the lower intake? I have had numerous occasions when the plastic fuel lines inside the plenum that attach to the spider were cracked.You can pressureize the fuel system with the upper plenum off and look for leaks also lift all the nozzles out of the holes and watch to see if they are dripping this a very common problem.

Chevy s-10 4cyl starts only with pedal only to floor but sputters bad and wont accelerate.


On Chevrolet fuel injected vehicles holding the accelerator on the floor during cranking activates "clear flood mode " that turns the fuel injectors off the fact that it then starts tell me that the engine is flooded or the ECT (engine coolant temperature) sensor or circuit is telling the ecm the wrong temp several other causes are blown fuel pressure regulator, low fuel pump pressure, low compression or faulty coil pack

If the engine truely is flooded, you need to let the vehical sit. The more you try to start the car, the more gas you are pumping into the engines. If you let the vehical sit, some gas will drain out. Hope this helps! Please rate 4 thumbs up!

Check the fuel pressure. Even if it's running it may not be producing pressure. See if you can keep it running on starting fluid or carbuerator cleaner. If so replace the pump.

you need to check see if it is getting fuel sounds like a clogged fuel filter and when you pump the fuel peddle you are puttting it clear flood mood which may also be leaking fuel injectors and flooding the cylinders with fuel but most likely is a clogged fuel filter try spraying starter fluid in throttle body and if starts its clogged fuel filter

Eengine wont start has gas and spark?


Does it sound like its spinning or turning faster than normal? If so could just be flooded. Try cranking engine with excellerator 3/4 way down at 10 sec intervals with 2 min brake in between. These cars have always seemed to flood easy. And the air intake system is so enclosed it cant really dry out easy. I try that 3-4 times if it does seem like its trying to start or getting better than Id say tow to mechanic. Possible coil problems too? But seen alot of them flood out.

I had the same problem with my 1990 chevy 1500 (350) replaced the plugs and wires no luck. I replaced the fuel pressure regulator, still no luck. So i called my mechanic he said it would either be the map sensore or the coolant temp sensor. I didnt figure the coolant temp sensor would cause my truck to flood but it was a 17 dollar part so i gave it a shot, took 10 seconds to switch it out with a 19mil deep socket. Truck fired up and ran like a top no more flooding. =)
