well it could be as simple as just replacing the fuel pump relay. it's located in the junction box under the hood. if the relay is good then check the fuel cutoff switch. that is located behinfd the fabric in the trunk along the wheel wells. if this was not triggered then it could be that you might have a glitch in the ecm water is not kind to computers especially cars that have the ecm's in the engine compartments

Three or four cranks shouldnt soak a plug that soon. I would check out your fuel presure regulator , sounds like its gone haywire and is stuck open.

sounds bad, I would drain the oil and leave it over night to drip out so it is completely dry, leave all oil caps an anything that will allow air in off the truck.
Do you have a compressor or air line you could use to blast air through the engine. if this is diesel fuel then it will take much longer to evaporate if this is gas/petrol then over night should do it.
Hope this helps

ncc-1701-d do not listen to this guy. This car is fuel injected. NO CARBURETOR! it's a throttle body! Do not mash pedal at all when starting car anytime. Engine light on? May be a problem with the Idle air control valve or the map sensor check the vacuum hose that goes to the map sensor. Check for vacuum leaks also. Check the three way connector on the hose from the cruise servo to vac. source. reply. 3800 or 3.8 these are two different motors.

It sounds like the engine computer. Also check the resistance in the injectors and o-rings. O2 sensor and coolant temp sensor could give you a problem.
