Over time the injectors will wear and leak . I have seen were after you get it started it is fine but if you let it sit for a while it is hard to start again.....If you plan to fix it I would recomend you replace ALL the injectors while you have it apart....I replaced 2 bad ones last week,then had to go back and fix another that was fine at that time..Will never just replace just one or 2 again. Do it right the first time !!!

My Suzuki XL7, is pumping fuel but it won't start, what can I do to make it start?

Just because it pumps fuel doesn't mean there is enough pressure. If there is, then check for spark at the plugs.

Blazer 1999 won't start got spark new fuel pump

Pull off one injector connector and use a test light or voltmeter to see if one wire has power with key on.
Power to the injectors is fed through the ignition switch, so with key on, you should have power there. The injector ground is inside the ECM. If you have power, you'll have to diagnose the circuit for why computer doesn't ground the circuit when it should.

As mentioned by you the fuel discharge is too much which seems to FLOOD the cylinders and so makes the firing difficult. So the fuel tuning must be done to ensure the correct pressure.
Also check if the spark intensity is good as if there is no spark there will be fuel flooding.
Have the fuel pump calibrated and the injectors checked, if not replace.

No start, injector dumping in fuel

When trying to start an engine that you feel might be "flooded" , hold gas pedal down to the floor while cranking . This will stop the injectors from triggering. You might have to remove spark plugs to clean and dry out from fuel. Hope this helps
