Hiya.. I hope i'm in the right forum?? I went to start my '05 WRX girl friday, and it was a no goer. Yes, before you ask, I did have 1/2 tank fuel! I ended up towing her to the dealer, who told me today (monday) that "you flooded it!"
Here's the Q.. How can you flood a fuel inj engine? Especially if I only depressed the accelerator 1 & 1/4 times as per owners manual? Is this guy blowing me off 'cause i'm a girl? I tried to ask him if it was leaky injectors? pressure regulator issue? throttle bypass valve?air flow meter? failing o2 sensor? something? he just replied "no, you just flooded it!"
I get any of these things could have the potential to flood the vehicle if they were not functioning properly. Any ideas? please don't tell me it's the girl thing

Why did you push the pedal at all? It's not carbureted so it's not like you need to do it engage a choke or something. Whenever I go to start my car I just hop in, push the clutch, and then start the car.
For flooded engines, IIRC can't you just push the accelerator to the floor for a second or 2 and it clears the engine? I know that works on some cars, but I don't know about these, never had to try it.

yeah, you can't flood a fuel injected engine unless you have fouled injectors or some other fuel system problem. Definitely can't be done just by pressing the accelerator. I hope you acted real sceptical so they don't feel like they got away with feeding you that BS.
