Why would a 1997 Ford Contour 4 cylinder act like its flooding when you start it and you can smell the gas?

If the check engine light comes on go to auto zone and have the codes read free. Check the injectors and fuel lines for leaks.

I HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM WITH MY CONTOUR AND IT ENDED UP BEING THAT THE FUEL INJECTORS WERE LEAKING DOWN INTO MY CYLINDER THEREFOR "FLOODING IT OUT"

No. The chipped ignition key did not start until the 1998 model year and was only on the 6 cylinder Contour and Mystique. (I've got a '97 6 cylinder Contour that seems to have a chip in the key.)

Hesitation. Stumble. Backfire. Flooding. Hard cold start. Hard warm start. Poor idle. Poor mpg. Smell of fuel.

There are several reasons why a 1998 Ford Contour will not start. The car may not start if the battery is dead, the starter may need replaced, or the head gaskets are blown.

Normally, no. If they do start to smell then you have rotten eggs.
