How To Start Your Car if the Engine Floods

Have you ever experienced that, after turning on and off the car engine for a short period of time, your car is unable to start? If that sounds familiar, then probably your engine was flooded. This happens when there’s too much gas and not enough oxygen in the engine, causing the spark plugs to get wet and making it difficult to ignite the fuel.

This is one of the most common problems for carbureted cars. It will typically occur when you hit the gas too hard or pump the accelerator too much when starting your car. It rarely happens with modern, fuel-injected cars if the temperatures are normal. However, problems can arise in cold weather, when more fuel is injected to start the car. Do you want to learn the best way to address this problem? Keep reading and you will find out.
