    May need a carb kit. I will state the obvious.... what is the fuel mix you are using ?

    I beleive Husky recommends 40:1

    If that is ok there is a little air fuel mix on carb, try setting that.

    What does a flooded engine run like? At Idle? At full throttle? Did you adjust something? Change elevation? Change fuel mix? Did you try cleaning the spark arrester (muffler)?

1988 jeep Cherokee Laredo won't start turns over ,has spark, gets fuel


no engine size stated, (so i toss coin, 4.0L) 5miilion strong.
the 1988 is the gawd awful French RENIX fuel injection.
i owned 2 of these pigs. (sure it runs) but sux.
why?, no CEL lamps , no flash codes, no OBD1 , no OBD ! anything.
only the very old and rare factory and dealer tools can scan this pig.
lets do this better?
in vivid details.
NO start 101: (order matters too)
  1. compression at spec, on all 6 cylinders? (old engines do die)
  2. spark at all 6 spark plugs good,? not just 1.
  3. car is tuned up. spark plugs.cap rotor, wires, and filters?
  4. the ign timing light on #1 wire, shows spark landing near TDC 0 degrees or under hood stated spec. (open hood look up )
  5. i now check for flooding, is it? spark tips , TALK to me.?
  6. yes, then check fuel pressure. next.
  7. no, then are they dry, you said wet. ('gets fuel means what"?)
  8. if flooding, i unplug the fuel pump relay and start car with test fuel if it runs for 3 seconds and stops, that is a PASS condition so but if not 1, to 7 above was skipped. lets say its flooding
  9. if flooding did you try cranking per opr guide wide open throttle? this CUTS all fuel and clears all flooding on all gas engines. and for sure all EFI. gas engines.
  10. my guess is its running now. right? if here?
  11. if not, check fuel pressure per the fsm cranking, and the MAP sensor. out put voltage key on, and cranking. and post that.
  12. good luck.

get the engine to run on test fuel first. this saves big time labor
down time, and wasted parts , guessed at)

doing a real tuneup , is not ever a waste.
a tuned up engine pays back in lower gas costs. big time.
fuel is expensive.

2006 liberty cranks but wont start


gas engine, not diesel.
its probably flooding, ever give it a 60k mile tune up, ever?
we check spark tips for flooding and dry,never do we guess at fuel pumps, ever. (pressure gauge is $20)
tips dry or soaking wet.
we check for spark , no gas engine car runs with no spark
so we check all cylinders for good spark
if spark is good and flooding (new spark plugs) we use
cranking wide open throttle wot. like the operators guide says.
start now? this cuts all injection, this magic PCM trick.

see scotty ,
1: compresson at spec, 2: spark good and timed. and 3: fueling last.

skip the silly ad.
note he says 2, but he ASSUMES compression is good. (oops)
but his tests are fast, and if it fails to start, see #1 above. ask

Suzuki Aerio 2004, will crank over floods out tho. Changed Plugs and Boots. New baterry too. Can smell gas @ Tail pipe. Wants to fire-but just won't catch. Where do I start looking for the answers.?


what engine? 2.3 or 2.5L?
all cylinders flooding??? spark tips on ALL dripping in gas?
check spark at all spark plugs ( ALL not just ONE)
if spark is good.
this engine is chain cam, so it makes huge noise before death.
did it?, nah
ok, so connect any $9 scan tool, and scan it. (barrow /rent.?)

you crank it for 5 seconds, not less.
and as you crank the scan tool RPM shows 250 to300 rpm and fails to start, the RPM on the tool shows you that the crank sensor is working
now release the key and do not turn off
look for DTC errors. got P0340,355? or any other DTC
that decodes to bad CMP or CKP/
yes, BINGO, the scan tool told you why spark is dead, or way off
timing,

the PCM will report Cmp or CKP errors even 1 in 6 pulses.
the PCM runs monitors against these 2 full time. and will see it fail.
and report, it, let it tell why spark is bad.
say spark is good. and still floods.
1: engine compresssion over 150psi? W.O.T?
2: flooding , i pull the fuel pump relay and crank now.
starts and runs for 3 -5 seconds, yes, that is the flood clearing
so i then try test fuel, runs perfect now (no fuel pump) ???
runs for 3 second, each test fuel usage. well good motor, good spark.
what more do you want? sure to run
so you have either insane high fuel pressure. or injectors leaking
can and does happen.
the tests are all in the FSM under injector and pump testing.
i check fuel pressure first. as its a mandatory thing.....
to factory spec. for unsaid engine.
then i do a injector leak down and balance check.
ask if you get this far.....????

I have a 2004 4 Runner. I've got 210k miles and it runs great however in the morning I'll drive to work (35 miles in traffic). Runs fine. At lunch I'll start and it runs rough like it misses or...


Hi Brian,

The airflow sensor is working with temperature. If there is a problem the car will flud with fuel. I suggest that you change this senror.

Good luck..

'83 virago xv500k starts right up, runs solid, but


the fuel tap may be causing to problem, if it doesnt turn off it can also flood the engine over night and allow fuel into the sump which then vaporises as it gets hot and the breather allows this fuel back through the air cleaner causing rich mixture

Fuel pump issue, gradual flooding


NEED TO QUIT GUESSING.. IS THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT ON.. SCAN FOR CODES. IF NONE THEN NEXT STEP IS TO CHECK FUEL PRESSURE.. IF IT IS GOOD.. THEN IF IT IS FLOODING OUT. ONCE IT IS FLOODED YOU CAN PULL SPARK PLUGS AND FIND THE ONE THAT IS WET,,, SUSPECT THAT INJECTOR TO BE STUCK OPEN
