Could be bad fuel injectors that leak when vehicle is parked for any length of time causing it to flood One very cold morning I again ran my battery down trying to start my Mark VIII. My wife started her SUV and jumped the battery for me. Her advice to me has solved the problem. DO NOT PRESS THE ACCELERATOR. Just turn the key and let the computer control the air fuel mixture. Now it works every time!!!!!

What would cause a fuel injected car to flood when trying to start The spark plugs are wet with fuel?

You cant flood a fuel injected vehicle. It would be something else making it not start. It could be a bad fuel pump or spark plugs. Anything to do with the ignition. Distributorless pack, where all the wires plug into. Also hard starting problems are sometimes the result of an improper starting technique on the part of the driver. On a fuel injected engine, DO NOT push or pump the gas pedal when trying to start the engine. This just puts the engine into the Clear Flood mode, which will cut off fuel to the engine temporarily making it even harder to start. Just crank the engine without touching the gas pedal.
