Have a 2004 nissan altima plugs getting wet with gas take them out and dry car starts but same problem after 5 6 hrs won't start again what's the problem

Your engine is flooding with fuel which is why you have wet plugs and why you are having problems starting the car. A flooded engine will not start.

It sounds like a recurring flooding problem rather than a one off and the injectors may be leaking. One way or another too much fuel is being delivered by the injectors.

Get the car into Nissan Service and have them check it over and identify the cause.
Here is some information on the flooding problem prepared by a professional master mechanic.

1992 F150 5.0 flooded

Hi, wow!

sounds bad, I would drain the oil and leave it over night to drip out so it is completely dry, leave all oil caps an anything that will allow air in off the truck.

Do you have a compressor or air line you could use to blast air through the engine. if this is diesel fuel then it will take much longer to evaporate if this is gas/petrol then over night should do it.

Hope this helps

My car turns over but does not start and two spark plug chambers are flooded. possible fix?

You may have jumped the timing on your car. If you are flooding out two of the cylenders this tells me that you have done so. Take it to a professional and have them look at it, unless you are comfotable with replacing and retiming your belt.

''My flooded car starts but wont stay running after replacing engi

Has the gas tank been drained and let to dry out and then refilled with gas and a water dryer and the fuel filter replaced? If not then you are in for trouble still and this is why is will not run. You are getting fuel and spark. Which means that your fuel pump is working and the starter is fine. Ingnition could be your problem but I would do the gas thing first then move on
