It was missin now wont start


must be 90s week?
no starts, but cranks fully and full crank speed, which is near 300 rpm, called robust cranking but notarts.
its flooded.
(compression not above150PSI) means the timing belt has slipped.
and will never run right again, ever do the 60k tuneup yet.
if not , why not?
flooding.? so many way to flood.
1: spark plug tips x4 all wet with fuel.
use the cracking (wide open throttle like the op.guide shows)
this cuts all fuel, (EFI)
2: no spark, check spark x4 and if all 4 are dead, try the coil.
if the coil is dead, no spark there, then the dizzy is toast.
90 cars are a stand alone dizzy, meaning ECU is not doing this.
3: Flooding can be caused by other things.
see em all here.
over 28 ways !
but there are only really 3 ways.
1: bad engine (60k tuneup skipped.)
2: bad spark
3: bad fueling.

it is one of those,
there are 2 exceptions.
1: EGR main stuck open. (this kills fueling to start and low rpm)
2: CAT melted (this kills an engine, it cant pump air. )

Hi you dont say if your car is petrol or diesel if petrol it could be no spark at the plugs if so it will not fire to test remove 1 plug and rest it on top of engine must be earthed and conect plug to the lead do not hold it then turn engine over on the key you should have a spark .if no spark suspect the coil. If its a diesel try easey start in airfilter housing .

Hi Mark try spraying some starting fluid in the intake.You asked about putting petrol in the carburettor...your 1992 Saab has a carburettor? Impossible.That vehicle is fuel injected.Spray the starting fluid lightly or you'll flood the engine.

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

Car Flooding-Not starting


I had the same symptoms. I had to count the correct number of teeth from the crankshaft pulley to the cam pulley marks.It is a different number of teeth to each pulley.It turns out that I was off by one or two teeth on one cam.
