Thats too vague of a question. you will need a qualified shop to check it over and recommend proper repairs. one of the ECM sensors could be bad, tps or ect (throttle sensor or temp sensor)

What are the symptoms and differences between vapor lock and flooding. 1995 Chevy Silverado 1500 2 wheel drive extended cab short bed


Vapor lock only happens when the vehicle is hot. Flooding at start up, you smell gas. If it is over fueling threw the carb/throttle, then you will see lots of black smoke out of the tail pipe when running.

Chevy lumina 1994 wont start smells like gas


Could be flooded out.Try starting it again with the gas pedal to the floor. Everytime you turn the key on, it shoots gas in the engine. When you try to start it, keep doing it for 20 to 30 seconds. Then let off. wait a couple minutes and do it again.

98 RAM 1500 WONT START


Replace the coolant sensor NOW!? Its causing a flooding condition as evidenced by wet plugs that short out when flooded. Blip the starter and see if raw fuel is blown out as another indication of a flooded condition. In cases of flooded engines, holding the gas pedal to the floor shuts off the injectors during starting to clear out the cylinders.

The brass replacement sensor will cure flooding and many other engine/transmission issues.

I ran out of gas, stupid i know ( my husbands going to shoot me) Is there a quik fix to getting to start now. It has gas, but of course the fuel injection is messed up now.


hi try some injection cleaner...like redX or something like that, this should clear the injectors and get the fuel flowing, just a tip, now it has fuel in, you want to press the gas peddle all the way to the floor and turn it over don't pump it just hold it down with your foot( turn key in ignition that is lol ) this will help "flood" the system with fuel and help it start better...by the way, when i say flood, that's just loosely termed flood, it dose not actually flood it, just puts a little extra fuel into the pots....hope this helps please comment and rate thank

Yesterday my 1993 chevy s-10 blazer was driving fine but when i cut it off and went in the house for a second and went to crank it back up it wouldn't start it turnsover when i turn the key and its getting...


If you are sure you have a spark to at least half of the plugs, and there is no reason to suspect that the engine was being used abnormally just before it was shut down then it is most likely flooded or you ran out of gas.
Black smoke from the tailpipe indicates that the engine is getting a fuel mixture abnormally high in fuel (flooding). White smoke generally indicates not enough fuel.
Unless your engine is damaged or the timing changed, your engine will run if it has the following: proper fuel mixture, air, a spark to at least half of the spark plugs, and compression.
For a "flooded" engine there are two routes. Wait until the excess fuel has had time to dissipate or hold the accelerator to the floor while attempting to start. Be prepared to let off the accelerator about halfway as soon as it starts. And then down to about 1500 rpm. You do not want to over rev the engine. But holding it at about 1500 rpms for about 3-5 seconds will help flush out any excess fuel. You can then slowly return it to idle speed.

1994 s10 4 by 4 blazer ,eng/ 4.3 v6 with tpi / auto ////// car does run , battery went dead , replaced with a new battery. tried to start the car , it had been sitting for 3 weeks,,....


I'm assuming it won't start now with the new battery..
they do sometimes flood, but not usually unless there's a regulator problem, etc..
but try starting fluid into intake 1st.
If it starts and runs, then proceed..
You'll have to start by checking if the fuel pump is running with key to ON 1st and foremost.
the power to pump.
If so, then check for fuel pressure
then power to spark/coil, etc..
then spark
then other..
even Temp sensor switch...(check wiring diagram in Haynes repair manual)
too much to check from there on if no start still

I'm not an expert, just tryin to help from much experience with Chevys

I have a 94 chevy cavalier. and it wont start. the coil is fine and so is the spark plugs. and it does turn over when i crank it... i would pump the gas a couple of times and it would seem to try and start...


you need to check see if it is getting fuel sounds like a clogged fuel filter and when you pump the fuel peddle you are puttting it clear flood mood which may also be leaking fuel injectors and flooding the cylinders with fuel but most likely is a clogged fuel filter try spraying starter fluid in throttle body and if starts its clogged fuel filter

I have a 1990 chevy lumina runs great until you turn it off and restart it acts like its not getting gas


Hard starting? Try holding accelerator to floor until it catches then let off immediately, so as not to over-rev engine. (As it was done for a flooded situation with carburetor.) You may be getting leak-by on one or more injectors, causing it to act like a flooded situation.

I had the same problem with my 1990 chevy 1500 (350) replaced the plugs and wires no luck. I replaced the fuel pressure regulator, still no luck. So i called my mechanic he said it would either be the map sensore or the coolant temp sensor. I didnt figure the coolant temp sensor would cause my truck to flood but it was a 17 dollar part so i gave it a shot, took 10 seconds to switch it out with a 19mil deep socket. Truck fired up and ran like a top no more flooding. =)
