Hi.

It is flooding because of incorrect fuel air mixture, and because the injectors are pumping the wrong amount of fuel.

This can happen for a number of reasons, such as vacuum problems, bad O2 sensor, MAF sensor, AIT sensor, misfire, distribution problems, injection problems and more.

The best thing to do is going to Autozone and performing a free fault code scanning.
Fault finding is free at Autozone, and will tell you what the problem can be.

After the scan they do not give you a printout with codes, therefore write down the OBD codes and come back to us with the codes.


Regards.

    If you get no codes, it can be a broken valve or a faulty injector.

    Try pumping on the pedal before starting and check if it does flood the same. This can a minor problem releasing a bit of pressure on line.

    If the problem is big it may even be a faulty PCM.

2005 Saab 95. No start engine cranks but no start


Probably not the crank sensor if it is firing.
You can disable the fuel pump and try to dry it out if you think it is flooded. Then find out why.

I have a 1993 ford econoline E150 tht won't stay running


id do the 60k mile tune up first.
then if still bad.
find out if the problem is spark (test spark)
or bad fueling, check for flooding at any spark plug.
if not flooding (spark tips , read) then try test fuel.

if flooded try super secret unflood mode,
that is crank with wide open throttle.
if ISC is stuck closed, try cranking with 10% throttle (adds the missing air)

Car will not start like its not catching fire , i have a 2008 suzuki xl7


old post. but will answer.
the starter only cranks the engine, that is it's only job.
if it cranks robustly (at crank shaft pulley ,see it) then its ok.
250 RPM is typical cranking speed. RPM
no starts are complex.
for any engine Gas, to start you needs 4 things.
  1. ALL FUSE TO EFI GOOD, TEST THEM. CEL glows key on?
  2. full engine compression and crank vacuum 5" HG or more.?>??
  3. Spark , try a fresh tune up with fresh spark plugs. all 6 sparking.?
  4. Fueling , must be right. not flooding , not starving
if spark and engine are good, all engines(most) will start with test fuel.
This one simple test. proves the engine is ok, and spark is ok.
and the fuel system is dead.
these checks , will let is work the 4 systems. that might fail.
this is the classic basics path.
and works 99.% of the time.

exceptions, are clogged melted cat.
or stuck wide open EGR
or ISC stuck closed, (no starting air.) use 10% throttle to prove that.
or flooding, if flooding use super secret unflood mode (opr guide)
hold the throttle (right foot) pedal to the floor, this cuts fueling
and the flooded engine starts, for full time or runs and floods and stalls again.
This is called basics , in all ASE books in print.
RTM.

Fluids out when you try to start


double posted, and fluids? you mean FLOODS.
see previous post,
there are other ways to flood any motor.
one other is (iSC /IAC devices are stuck closed) gummed up.
this cause no starting air, no air means flooding.
I cant see your car, and see if starting with 10% throttle solves the flood, but you can.
also WOT cranking, cuts all fueling and can not flood and will start any flooded engine.
but if this still floods,now, that is bad injectors. leaking.
WOT cuts injection pulses dead, and no fuel flows, cranking.
knowing these facts on EFI makes finding causes easy.

Flooded 3.7 dodge dakota engine


To start any flooded engine is to allow full air into the engine while cranking. IE with a carby hold the acceleratot flat to the floor until the excess fuel is removed from the cylinders. (make sure that the choke is not stuck closed) Do not pump the pedal as this only makes the problem worse. With efi it should not flood but if you feel that it is flooding check for faulty injectors then again hold the pedal to the floor while cranking

Can you flood a fuel injested car by tring to start it for a lon time with a dead battery.


Yes, if the key is on, and there is enough power to turn on the fuel pump, you can flood the car.

When i crank my 96 taurus sometimes it floods out and wont crank.


Too much gas won't make it hard to crank. To thick oil or not enough antifreeze will. If it's flooding, slowly pump the gas pedal to the floor 3 times and then with the pedal held tight against the floor, crank the engine. This will open the butterfly wide open and will blow the extra gas out.
