Usually a flooding problem is a shorted fuel injector or a leaking fuel pressure regulator. Does it happen if the injectors are unplugged ?

Take it back to your mechanic, it may just be a connector that got bumped loose since the light was off before service.

2004 Hyundai Accent would not start after it had warmed up. Subsequently it would not start at all but the valve cover blew off.

That sounds like a timing/ cooling system issue. The coolant sensor would adjust the timing etc. Your tech would have to scan the car & check the live readings (HOT & COLD) & check the emissions. Put all the pieces together & solve the puzzle

I had the same issue!! it is the security system failing. I took it to the shop and they wanted a ridiculous amount of money to fix it.. So i did a ton of research and i found a part you can install yourself that will bypass it allowing your car to start every time... I did mine 5 years ago and i havent had an issue since. Check out the site your car in on the list year make and model.. They are friendly and have great customer service and for some reason if it doesnt work they will refund you 100% hope this helps ya out Do It Yourself GM Security bypass

Replaced motor in 96 sunfire car will not run. Acts like it is flooding out. Have got it to run a few times. Changed map sensor, coil pack, fuel pressure sensor, injectors, crank position sensor, pretty...

Did the old motor run? Is this a used motor? Did you hear this motor run before you installed it? Have you tried running it with the exhaust unbolted from the manifold?

2004 Pontiac Sunfire Power Windows Do Not Work Properly

Same problem. I had the driver window go first and then the passenger. You must replace the motors. Moisture has gotten into the motor and rusted parts of it. New motor cost be $55. It took two people (myself and a friend) a good 8 hours to extract old motor and install the new one.

I have a 2004 GMC Yukon with auto climate control. The front a/c is working but the fan will not come on. The rear a/s works fine. Checked fuses, they are all good. Any suggestions?

It's most likely your blower motor control module. Easy fix! Remove the kick plate under the glove compartment and the module is right next to your blower motor - remove the two screws and it will drop right out. Disconnect the wire harness (2 wires) and replace. Good luck!
