Re: 2002 odyssey injectors flooding
The owner's manual offers these tips on starting in cold weather. First, do not touch the gas pedal and crank the engine for no longer than 15 seconds. If no start, hold the gas pedal halfway down and crank for no longer than 15 seconds. If no start, hold gas pedal all the way down and crank for 15 seconds. If no start, hold gas pedal halfway down and crank for 15 seconds. During any one of the start attempts with the gas pedal part/all the way down, if the engine should start, slowly release the pedal so the engine will not race. Remember that fuel does not atomize as easily in cold weather and can be a problem.

what vechicle type model and the year.older cars carb type if automatic choke not working or vacuum pull off not working carb will flood out engine.for cold start up engine need good spark and fuel.if engine flooding could have weak spark due to worn out spark plugs and wires.could have vacuum leak or bad engine coolant temperature sensor.dirty air filter.dirty fuel injectors.
I find that in most fuel injector cars this can happen if the car is not given a couple of seconds to pump enough fuel to charge the injectors properly, especially on warmer days.
Try this: The next time you test this, instead of putting in the key and turning it all the way to start in one smooth move, try moving the key to the ON position, leave it there for a couple of senconds (you should hear the fuel pump whirr for a couple of senconds, then shut off. This means it is finished charging the injectors to the right pressure) then move the key to the start position to crank. See if that helps... (it has helped me...)
the pressure in your fuel system may be too high causing the injectors to flood the cylinders. it could also possible be the security safety lock, not sure if that year had it. you may also need to adjust the timing or check spark plugs.
Make sure your hood is shut. I just got my 2002 Honda Odyssey back from the dealer today (90,000 mile check-up - I love my van and will drive it until it dies!) and when I went to lock the van with my remote transmitter, the lights didn't flash and the horn didn't sound. I open and closed all the doors and tailgate and I could hear that the doors were locked, but the security system wasn't working and that is why the lights didn't blink or the horn didn't sound. I walked up to the front of the van to check the hood to make sure it was closed (there isn't an indicator light for an open hood, only open doors) and the hood wasn't shut completely. Once I opened the hood and let it drop to securely shut, I hit the door lock button on the remote and everything worked like a charm! Hope this helps others in this predicament.
