I have a 1991 cavalier rs v6 3.1 liter, the wires hooked up to my ignition became lose, before I found this out I kept trying to crank my car over, now that I fixed my ignition wire my engine is flooded and wont start, how long should it take to unflood and what can I do to help make it run again?

If you hold the gas pedal down all the way, the PCM will go into clear fllood mode and shut off the fuel injectors until it starts. Give it a try and let me know.
