If its got floats in carbs, a needle and seat could be stuck open, or if somebody's been monkeying with it the float adjustment could be set too high allowing too much fuel in the float bowl and then it goes out the overflow tube.

My Capri dumps fuel has spark won't start


If it's "dumping" fuel into the engine, the computer has it cold start mode. Stay off the throttle pedal when try to start after a good while to allow fuel to clear. If it won't start then, you've a fuel regulation problem on cold start. But do wait a good while for fuel to clear fron engine, then try to start without touching the throttle. It's meant to be this way.

Engine 2.2 hard to start in am or pm and strong smell of gas after it starts.


It sounds like a leaking fuel injector(s) dumping fuel into a stopped engine. OR it could be a leaking fuel line.. It the gas smell in the engine compartment or out the exhaust? Engine compartment means leaking fuel line.

2004 tomas moped sitting for a year started every 3 mo. rode it after ride notice gas leaking now it would start.


Sounds like fuel is overflowing from the carb , hence the fuel will also overflow internaly into the engine causing it to overfuel flooding the engine and soaking the plug in petrol, clean the plug, with the fuel turned off open the throttle wide while you attempt to start the engine, the extra air from the open throttle should be all it takes

1999 Eldorado- does not overheat, but dumps coolant under car sporadically. I have heat too. Can see nothing from top side but when it dumps it comes out center of car under motor. Seems to dump when...


Hello: There are two metal pipes on the back of the engine thar carry the coolant from the driver side of the engine to the heater core and back to the engine. It is possible they may be rusted out. Also it could be head gasket failure, When it comes out check the coolant overflow tank on the passenger side under the hood and see/hear if it is gurgling. The overflow tank hose may be stopped up or it could be the wrong radiator cap. Hope this will give you a place to start. The radiator cap should be rated at 15psi

Engine turns over and all plugs are firing, but the engine will not start. Released the fuel pressure to see if fuel was getting in and there was pressure.


Try flooring the gas pedal when you go to start it (but quickly remove your foot on the pedal when the car starts).

That is just to clear the flooding (it's called clear flood mode when the accelerator is floored before the engine is on).

You need to replace your Engine Coolant Temp sensor. It is dumping too much fuel in your engine and not allowing it to start. The stock one is plastic and cracks. It then sends a signal to the PCM that the engine is -40F (that's negative 40 degrees F as in below zero). The PCM then tries to warm up the car by dumping fuel in it but since it isn't that cold it causes a problem.

Get a new brass one from AutoZone or the like and replace it. It's a 10 minute job and takes a 13MM deep well socket.
