Question about 1998 Dodge Dakota
Your assessment that the fuel is flooding can be right as this can be the only reason that the car is not starting up unless the system drains off.
It will be easy to confirm if you can stop the engine and see if the fuel still drains into the cylinder. When the engine fails to start you must remove the plugs and check for smell off fuel flooding, now do a flush up cranking with the plug taken off, If the fuel flow is more then the pump must be calibrated with a service center for the correct pressure specially with the idle settings.
The throttle position sensor, the ECU is also a possible suspect. make sure the sensor connectors are tight as the ECU might be getting a throttle wide open condition from the throttle position sensor.
Make sure you recheck all the connections , remove refit all sensors after checking.
Once this is done the fault must be cured.
