SOURCE: 1997 Camaro, Z28 Car is running rich, flooding out and fouling

Depending on how many miles are on the car, I would bet you have a stuck or failed fuel injector, or multiple injectors that are leaking. Check EBAY, there are usually lots on there for sale used. They are very easy to change.

SOURCE: engine misfire code multiple cylinders, starts

There are quite a few things that can cause this.
Check your fuel pressure to start. 55 psi key on is good.
Also make sure it dosen't fall back down should hold at that psi with out engine running.
Aslo the intake's like to leak air around the gaskits which will cause a miss fire.
Aslo the mass air flow.

Mustang keep flooding out and cannot figure out whyit was running fine one day while we were driving it and it just started flooding out

"Flooding out" and "sweating out" are not accurate descriptions of anything. If you mean that the mixture is too rich, it is either failure of the ignition system to provide sufficient spark, or failure of one or more injectors. There is no magic button fix, and dealing with fuel system issues can be dangerous for the novice... you will need to perform standard diagnostics or refer to a qualified mechanic.

Car ships replaced wires plugs o2 sencer sometimes acts like it is flooding run fine on open road.

If it acts like it is flooding while idling, but it runs fine on the road, it could be running too rich and flooding it out due to leaking injectors, bad fuel pressure regulator, or excessive fuel pressure.

I would start by replacing the Fuel Pressure Regulator since it doesn't cost as much as the injectors.
Check your fuel pressure using a Fuel Pressure Check Gauge to see if the fuel pressure regulator is maintaining the proper pressure.

Vacuum is attached to the Fuel Pressure Regulator to control system pressure. When the fuel pressure regulator is not functioning properly it causes the fuel pressure to be above normal operating pressure. This condition causes excess fuel to be injected causing a rich mixture that produces black smoke.

QUESTION: I have a 97 Saturn SL 2 179,000 miles

You need to change your ECTS and it's connector if it has gunk and corrosion in it. Change the ECTS to the brass tipped one and get rid of the plastic tipped one in the car.

Also change your Thermostat which is located inside the lower radiator hose on the engine block. Sounds like your car is running itself rich because it thinks it is cold and flooding itself (hence the full throttle which is a "clear flood mode" and shuts off the injectors while starting).

Dies at Idle and decelration - won't start for 15

Hello. I bet your problem is one of these two things. 1: your timing is out. Making it run at such a low idle that it stalls itself out. 2: your truck is running too rich and flooding itself out. Just adjust theb timing a bit and lean the motor out a bit and you should be as good as new! Hope this helps!

1997 gmc k1500 seems to be running rich, very rich

If the engine is trying to flood, it will kill the engine. If you have the spider fuel system, it is noted for problems.
If it cranks good but won't start, have a helper crank it while you check for spark at the spark plugs. If spark everywhere, use a gage and check proper fuel pressure, also, check fuel injector pulse.
I don't know if this may be a problem? below
