1997 Chrysler LHS Repair Question
Asked on January 14, 2012
97 LHS floods and wont start when cold outside-strong fuel smell-spark plugs wet
When the outside temperature is below 35 degrees(approx.) and is wet/damp car cranks-sputters once or twice and then just cranks-get a strong fuel smell-pull plugs and they are soaked with fuel-something seems to make car spray too much gas into cylinders. Spark looks good but have nothing to measure voltage-get no trouble codes on scan tool. Have no problem during the rest of the year with it starting. I have a repair manual but can find no trouble shooting for this problem. Can you help me?

Once plugs are fouled, you may need to replace? Use a gage and check for correct fuel pressure. Also, check that the pressure doesn't drop like a rock, with everything off. With some makes and models, I've seen the coolant temp sensor cause engine to flood.
