Will not start, flooded


Press the accelerator pedal to the floor and keep it there! Now turn over the vehicle, it will try to start and eventually will fire up, when that happens release the accelerator pedal and it should be all good!

I have a problem in a 1995 lexus es300 i start the car and it feels like a flooded start once the engine is on, i step on the gas and it floods only when accelerating, if i accelerate slowly it will go up...


Most cars have a rev limiter built in and will not let the engine goe past 4000 rpm's you may want to change out the spark plugs as often if it has flooded just once the plugs do foul out

2001 vw cabrio starts then dies immediately. will not stay running and you can smell gas -- seems to be flooding


Often, when a vehicle starts and dies immediately, there is a problem with the security system. It could be a key fob with a bad battery or a system that has lost communication with the rest of the vehicle. Try using a different key to start the vehicle. If this does not work, try scanning the vehicles computer to find any fault codes. Security system issues often have to be repaired by a dealer or a shop with qualified equipment. If you smell fuel when the vehicle starts and then dies, flooding would not be the problem, but rather a lack of fuel. Look for puddles of fuel under the vehicle and make sure there are no loose connections or bad lines.

Wont start the first time, can smell gas and it turns over though. i leave it for few hours and try it again and it starts first try! why is this


stop pumping the accelerator because it sounds like you are flooding the engine. 1 press when cold is more than enough

1993 Lexus Ls400 loss of power a 2500-3000rpm when you accelerate hard on the gas pedel, hower if you press down on the gas pedal slowly the power will increase all the way up to 6000rps with no power...


Sounds like your fuel filter is getting clogged up. Get that changed and it will be fixed. Should be an easy, cheap fix. Hope this helps, James Booth :))

Just changed water pump which had frozen, now when running it will die during acceleration but will start back up. Also, the oil and exhaust smell like gas.


Clarify what U mean by die? The gas smell is probably you need a tune up, or your fuel injectors could be at fault.
