It could be a bad connection at the ignition switch or a bad key tumbler. Or you could also have leaking fuel injectors. Which would make the engine continue to run for a little bit after you turn it off because the cylinders are hot and you have compression. But if you had leaking injectors you would probably be able to smell more gas than normal out of the exhaust while it's running normally. How long does it continue to run after you turn the engine off? If it dies after a little while when you turn it off it will more than likely be the injectors but if it continues to run and you have to take off a battery cable or disconnect something else to turn it off than more than likely it is the ign. switch or key tumbler.

Engine flooding


Check the fuel pressure. The pressure regulator may have gone bad and is delivering too much pressure to the fuel rail, thereby flooding the engine.

When the Check Light Flashes vs: being on steady,
you stop using the vehicle, as that indicates a misfire
bad enough to damage the Exhaust Converter

So obviously, you should have gone to a repair shop
a long time ago & resolved whatever issues are there

My first thought is that you may have a fuel filter issue or a fuel pump starting to go south. The part about the battery could be a dirty terminal, loose cable or the battery is giving up. Clean the cables and check fuel pressure. I would try to see what trouble codes are stored and address them as well.

Check your battery terminal's, check woltage when engine is off on your battery, check voltage when running. Could be alternator, battery ior something wrong with charging system.

The flashing check engine light would mean that the engine is misfiring, If you have a scanner, use it on the diagnostic port of the engine to check for the error code to get which cylinder is misfiring and if there are other errors that needs to be checked.

Engine will not start. I turns over. It like its not getting any gas.


You need to isolate the problem pour a little gas into the intake and see if it tries to run, if not , remove a spark plug wire and lay it on the engine with a known good sparkplug in the cap, turn the motor over and see if it is firing. If it is firing and you have fuel the only things left are timing and compression. If you broke a timing belt you can hear the engine turn over faster than normal when you are trying to start it.
If you aren't getting fuel, check fuel pressure with gauge if you have one at the TBI, most of the time it is either the fuel filter stopped up or the fuel pump gone bad. Can you hear the pump run when you turn the key on, you should hear it run the stop. If the fuel pressure is good at the TBI, ECM may have gone bad, it controls fuel and ignition. Is your check engine light flashing? You can jump a plug out on the firewall and get the fault code.
