What causes a 1993 Chevrolet Lumina to flood out?

Check your coolant temp sensor? Check for applicable trouble codes. You should be fully obd1 compliant, so you should be able to check some codes, yourself.
Use a gage and check proper fuel pressure, also, when you turn the key off, see if pressure holds for a bit. If it drops like a rock, you fuel pressure bleed-off somewhere. Check fuel pressure regulator vac line, if it has gas in it, the regulator is faulty.

What Does GMC trouble code 1258 signify?

Four digit codes are brand specific. For GM vehicles, code 1258 means the engine computer is in default mode for an engine overheat problem. Most performance options are limited to allow you to get the vehicle off the road or to a shop for repairs.
The engine could have been run hot, or the temp sensor may have failed.

Coolant temp below thermostat regulating temp

more than likely the thermostat has stuck open. Or opening to soon not allowing the car to reach normal operating temperature. I would start by replacing the thermostat. Clearing the code and running a drive cycle and see if the code comes back. if the code does not return problem solved. if it does return replace the coolant temp sensor.

The check engine light stays on my gas smells bad and my oil smells like fuel

You need to have the trouble code pulled so vehicle can be diagnosed. I suspect the engine is dumping fuel into the oil. If your fuel pressure regulator diaphragm ruptured this would give you the gas in the oil and a rich DTC. You could also have a coolant temp sensor that failed, making the computer think it's -40 degrees and commanding too much fuel-this too would make your oil smell like gas.
Trouble code would help in determining the cause. You can also remove the vacuum hose at the fuel pressure regulator-front left side of engine, on the fuel rail. It should be dry inside vacuum hose, if there is gas, the FPR diaphragm ruptured and more than likely that's the root cause of your problem.

Vehicle runs rough and seems to be flooded

Assuming it has a 3.1 V-6, it could be any # of failures. Bad plug wires, ignition coils, control module (under coil packs), crankshaft position sensor, map sensor, throttle position sensor, egr valve, fuel pressure regulator, fuel injectors, engine coolant temperature sensor, vacuum leaks; have it scanned for trouble codes to help in diagnosing! If you think it is just over fueling (flooding),look at fuel pressure regulator or coolant temp sensor ( when they fail the computer thinks its always -40 F causing it to over fuel). A bad map sensor can cause the same. Hope this helps. Thanks in advance for rating me!

Hard start

DTC - 15 Engine coolant temp sensor error (low temp indicated)
This is an Diagnostic Trouble code using the OB1 which simply means the check engine light blinking in series at certain intervals.But my thinking says that if you are having trouble wuth any sensor , the ECU or PCU computer will read all kinds of things in error. Try replacing the TCS temperature control sensor.Only 96 and up have a OB2 Diagnostic system
