Sounds like a fuel filter/fuel pump issue....I'm having a similar problem with my 1990 Grand Prix SE. Was hoping to find the location of the pump and filter, as they aren't even mentioned in the owner's manual!!! I'd prefer to do the repairs myself...another site said replacement of the filter was quite simple, and it's cheaper than the $50 the repair shop wants!!! Also, I read a review at that same website, where the author complained that his fuel pump went out at 199,000 miles. It's worth checking out!!
no gas, no oil (if no oil, engine is scrap metal) engine is flooded, spark plug wirre went bad
It could be the engine or maybe water could have flooded the spark-plugs.
Oil pressure shouldn't register at all until the engine starts and builds up pressure.
I had exactly the same problem with my 1996 Dodge Intrepid. The fuel pressure regulator was leaking which caused flooding of the engine if the engine were off for the right length of time. Too short and the engine did not have time to flood. Too long and the fuel evaporates and engine is no longer flooded. Just right and the engine is flooded and hard to start.
If by flooded, you mean with fuel, there are two solutions. One is to leave the engine alone for a while (an hour or so should be plenty long). The other is to hold the gas pedal on the floor (do not pump it) while starting the engine until the engine starts. Give the starter a break periodically, don't crank for more than 45 seconds continuously or damage can occur to the starter. If by flooded, you mean with water, it would depend on how long and what kind of water is involved. Repair could be as simple as flushing the engine, or as complicated as a total rebuild.
hold the throttle to the floor and while doing so, turn engine over and let engine rev up (do NOT overrev) before taking your foot off the throttle. When it first starts, it will run very rough and blow black smoke out of the exhaust as it burns the excess gasoline in the cylinders.
floated, flooded, flipped, flopped, flannel, flummox
try to turn up the idol screw if you have one and push the choke in as soon as it starts but keep gas on the hand accelerator
as you are looking at the engine the distributor is on the right of the engine the order is as follows 1,4,3,2 and it starts at the back and works forward
Park the vehicle in an area where you can go forward without hitting something. Place gearshift in 2nd gear. Do not push the clutch in and try to start the engine. If it starts and lunges forward the safety switch is defective.
Sounds like it could be a weak starter drive or a weak starter solenoid
