I'm having problems getting any firing at all when starting it. I turned the key the one time, fired and didnt start. Turned it again and nothing! After getting the fuel out changed plugs. There is a spark, but turned the key and still nothing. Without touching the pedal, it flooded. What is going on??

If you changed the plugs , tried to do the trick of pulling the egi fuse and still have no results. The next best thing to do is remove the down pipe off the manifold. Then do the efi fuse removal trick. Dave at KD rotary taught me this. Unless the motor is shot or you have an issue with your ignition (highly doughtfull) this should do the trick. Basicly when you over flood the car gas It is harder to get rid of removing the dp will give you less ehsitation of getting the gas out

why would you pull off your downpipe to unflood the manifold/motor?



unless im confusing some pipe with the exhaust coming off the back of a turbo.



the best way to dry out a flood is take out the plugs, pull the egi fuse, crank. thats for serious floods, most of the time taking out the egi fuse will suffice.

removing the downpipe has nothing to do with unflooding a car-who ever told you this has no clue
