Dealing With a Flooded Car

 

 

  • Have you moved your car a few feet, turned it off, returned to it and now it wont start?

 

  • Starting a cold car and turning it off, in some cases, can flood it

 

  • Before calling road side assistance try the following: 

 

  • Put your foot on the gas pedal and push to the floor. At the same time turn the engine over for 10 seconds and the car may start at this point. If not wait a while and try again.

 

  • Do not prolong for more than 10 seconds at a time as this can over heat the starter motor. Your car should start. If not call for assistance.
