Sounds like engine coolant sensor is at falt. If it thinks the weather is below O let's say. It will tell the computer that info and the computer will make the injectors poor the fuel to keep the engine running in the first start up but after the engine is warm and the coolant season doesn't tell the computer any different it will continue to poor the fuel in and will flood the engine. Get them Checked

If it has less than 100,000 miles it is under warranty. Most vehicles have a 100,000 mile warranty on drive train. It will save you hundreds of dollars. .

first thing to do is check the basics 1 air leaks ie, vacuum hoses 2nd clean the throttle butterfly/housing 3rd the engine coolant temp sensor in the cyl head/ thermostat housing if thats gone out of spec it will not fuel the engine correctly

When outside temp is above 80 degrees, engine will not start after running for a while. maybe vapor lock? After engine cools, 15-20 minutes engine starts.

Check the Engine Coolant Temperature sensor. If it is faulty or disconnected, it will tell the engine computer that the engine is still fully cold even when it is actually warm. The computer will then schedule too much fuel for a warm start--flooding the engine. You wind up waiting for the excess fuel to evaporate and the engine to cool down some and "match" the faulty sensor before it will start.

Another possibility is a leaking fuel injector. Again, a warm engine with too much fuel dripping from an injector will flood.

Hello, The Car started stalling when I would leave a green light. It would happen about once a month. It ran pretty good the rest of the time. This week when motor warms up and I turn it off it wont start....

your fuel injectors will be leaking and flooding the motor when warm, you can have them cleaned or try pull your EGI fuse and crank it over a few times then put the fuse back in and start it up

the injectors get old and under pressure they will leak when off and just drip fuel into the motor, no joke i have seen about 20 cars with this problem

Mazda rx8 flooded .brakedown come tried to start engine turned over !then starter got hot ,now dosnt turn over just clicks? any wdvice please

Your problem is common in the RX-8. It occurs when you start a cold engine and shut it off before it reaches normal operating temperature. If your car does flood, you can first try depressing the accelerator completely and holding it (which shuts off the fuel pump) and then crank the motor for about 10 seconds (not longer or you may damage your starter). If this procedure above does not work, here is the technique a Mazda dealership will normally use (to be performed at your own risk): 1. Use jumper cables to connect to another car battery. 2. Unplug Air pump connector (the black circular motor housing to the left of the oil filler cap) 3. Take fuel pump fuse out (number 22, a 20 amp, 3 from the top of the second column of the fuse box 4. Crank for 4 seconds, pause for 2 seconds, repeat for about a minute 5. Leave for a minute 6. Crank for 4 seconds, pause for 2 seconds, repeat for about a minute 7. Put fuel pump fuse back in 8. Crank for up to 10 seconds, if it catches but doesn?t start, stop cranking 9. If not started go back to step 3 10. If started, wait 30 seconds for oil pressure to rise 11. Stand on throttle until white smoke stops coming out of the exhaust 12. Disconnect jump leads 13. Leave to warm up on idle for a few minutes 14. Put air pump connector back on (see note 3) 15. Go for a nice long drive to recharge the battery

My 1991 crown vic runs great till it gets warm..about 5 minutes, then starts to flood out and wont start back till next day ...then same!!!!

if it starts to flood it may be the coolant temp sender. it could also be the crank angle sensor. hope this helps.

Engine Floods after brief start and run when cold -then shut off

Local mechanic determined engine was flooded and started it by holding throttle to the floor and cranking 5-7 seconds - then the engine sputtered to life. It has run perfectly before and since and I'm at a bit of loss to understand why this occurred this one time - so far. It's been driven now 5 days with no problems.
