I had exactly the same problem when I bought a ford pu last year for resale. 4 injector wiring lines were chewed through. I tried starting it before I fixed them, and it ran on the other 4... but it did foul the plugs that had chewed lines, so I changed them & that solved the problem. So if you have the right fuel pressure at the fuel rail, and your injector wiring has been done correctly, i would not buy new injectors until i put new plugs in those cylinders.

About the only thing that would make all 6 cylinders flood out is the fuel pressure regulator or a computer problem. You say you have checked the regulator, so the next step would be to check the injectors for a short to ground.

I have a 1999 dodge ram was running but stalled and wont start back has started flooding the plugs with fuel and wont start unless i take the fuel relay out


What is liter size of engine? I don't know what relay you unplugged? Your fuel pressure sounds too high? If you have fuel return line, if it gets clogged, it could cause your fuel pressure to rise.
It is your fuel injector pulse width that controls fuel, If pressure is too high, it could cause a problem. Usually voltage to fuel injector, goes hot with engine cranking. The computer controls fuel injector ground.

The fact the fuel pressure does not hold after the pump stops is a big problem indicating a fuel leak into the upper manifold, which would cause the flooding. This leak could have several causes, but since the problem is still there after replacing the regulator, it sounds like the problem is with the injector in the spider assembly.
It sounds like you have a design 1 spider assembly, with only one fuel injector distributing fuel to the six poppets. If that is the case, I suggest you try replacing the entire assembly (which will include a new regulator) with the Delco design 2 version which has injectors on each poppet.

Car ships replaced wires plugs o2 sencer sometimes acts like it is flooding run fine on open road.


If it acts like it is flooding while idling, but it runs fine on the road, it could be running too rich and flooding it out due to leaking injectors, bad fuel pressure regulator, or excessive fuel pressure.

I would start by replacing the Fuel Pressure Regulator since it doesn't cost as much as the injectors.
Check your fuel pressure using a Fuel Pressure Check Gauge to see if the fuel pressure regulator is maintaining the proper pressure.

Vacuum is attached to the Fuel Pressure Regulator to control system pressure. When the fuel pressure regulator is not functioning properly it causes the fuel pressure to be above normal operating pressure. This condition causes excess fuel to be injected causing a rich mixture that produces black smoke.

It sounds like the fuel pressure regulator is not working.Too much fuel pressure at low speeds, and at idle,not enougfh fuel return into the tank.This may flood the intake ports and too much injector cleaner may destroy the in line fuel filter it may not be filtering the fuel,just bypassing the filtering ,like no filter at all.
