slightly wet and black new plugs . will not start with fluid
says it flooded, or timed all wrong. (cam or spark)
or bad motor (compression test, fails)
the correct order if testing is:
motor (cam timing is big deal)
spark (timing is a big deal)
right here, test fuel works (tank empty or pump disabled)
its up to you , to do it , in that order or try it backwards, and pull hair.
FLOODING, has 2 paths.:
think of flooding like this
dead motors with bad cam timing or gross spark timing, cant burn fuel so fuel stacks up. and floods.... the more you crank the worse it gets.... no matter....
Excessive fuel injection, just that. (perfect motor and spark)
I pull the fuel pump relay and pump (crank) it dry, then try test fuel . verommmmmmmmmm stall.
if engine now starts and runs for 3 seconds with test fuel each try and sounds good?
then motor is good and you have true excessive fuel injection. Just one pull of one lil ol part.
if true excess? fueling , only? runs ok on test fuel?
reasons.? many... here are just 3 , as an example.
is fuel pressure at 60psi ????? a stuck Fuel pump reg does that, flood motor.... so do stuck open injectors,
or no scannmer (blind work), you missed out on the fact the ECT reads at -40F? and all DTC codes set ,saying just that?
do you know where your relay is>? it's here
easier on any kick is remove left rear tail light, leans, then pull the big connector with the big pink wire, (1 min time to do) and pump is dead, fuel pump.
below takes me, 10mins to do .
(1,2,3., motor good, spark good, fueling ,good, always works...... every time.
x2 , compression test. WOT> , wide open throttle. (warm best, but cold works too)
