It turns over and over but doesnt want to start

It turns over and over almost starting but never does. It acts like it is flooded. I had this problem before and i just took out the spark plugs cleaned them off and put them back in and it started. After it started i than replaced the spark plugs and oil and it ran great but i went out this morning to start it up but it just keeps turning over.

Could be the coil (if external), or the ignitor inside the distributor. Most commonly this is the main relay. You access it behind the dash above your brake pedal. If you had X-Ray vision you would see it through your pull out coin drawer on the left. It's mounted with a 10mm above your cruise control module. To diagnose you can either replace it to see if it starts or tap it while your trying to start it. You have to loosen it to gain access to it, it's a small little box that reads "Main Relay".

Check your choke unloader. This is a vacuum operated device that opens the choke slightly, after the engine has started. When this device fail, you go way too ruch.

It started, when i put it in reverse it died. now it will not turns over and acts like it wants to start but wont. there is gas in it.

Engage the "clear flood mode" by holding the gas pedal to the floor while cranking. This cuts down on fuel delivery to clear a flooded engine. As the engine starts and runs, let up on the gas.

2005 mazda rx-8 automatic will not start

Does it actually crank? If so and doesnt start then its probably flooded. Been a problem with those cars since they came out but not to feel bad theres quite a few cars that flood easy do to certain sensors. If not turning over but just clicks then battery issue just keep in mind every time try to start and it doesnt that more fuel enters the system and doesnt burn off which means more flooding (to much fuel)

454 ci gm turns over hard backfires timing ok acts flooded

Check fuel pressure, and regulator. A leaking regulator gives a warm engine more fuel [ it does not like it] a cold motor does. same as a flooded motor. Good luck
