The black color of the spark plugs indicate that the engine was running rich (too much fuel). The fact that they were wet tells me that there may not have been ignition. The carb being wet may be just from flooding when you tried to start the engine.
First off you need to determine if you are getting spark. You can do this by connecting one of the plugs to a wire and grounding it to the block. Have someone crank the engine and watch the plug for spark. Blue is good yellow is week. Use care holding the plug as it can give off a nasty kick. If you don't have spark than its time to check the wires, distributor cap, rotor and so on.

Believe it or not just as simple as spend the 180 on the spark plug wires they don't run even with three firing correctly. or check the cam or crank sensor. wires can be tested or looked at easily at night youll see flashes of electricity close to the spark plug wires.

Nissan pathfinder wont start. fuel pump checks out at 51 psi and spark plugs wet with gas


Try drying out the spark plugs. If the car starts after that, then you might have a leaky fuel injector. In my opinion, I think they're wet only because you probably were cranking it alot trying to start the car. I would change out the CAS (crank angle sensor) and see if she runs, as the majority of "not starting" cars I worked on was due to this. Hope this helped!

Engine won't crank, no spark and no fuel?


Check your map sensor which will be mounted up on the back firewall. The tube going to it is run off vaccuum so needs to be in perfect condition. I had the same probelm in the past :D on same car too lol
