I don't like that game either. I always go straight to rage mode. Then figure out its usually something simple.


Sometimes not, though. Like oh lawd gotta replace the head, or this or that.

Has fuel, has spark, has air, no fire. Once this next round of winter bullshit passes I'm gonna stick it on a battery charger. Had it tested, came back good, but something keeps nagging in the back of my head that I read if the battery gets any kind of weak with that engine, it won't fire. Even if it tests fine, and has enough juice to produce spark. I should have just bought a fucking sentra lol

Does it even try to start? Have you tried a WOR clear-flood?

Only thing I'm coming up with is water oil ratio, and it all seems to be in relation to fracking. I'll keep looking, see if I find it, but if you're back on here before(if) I find it driven, am explanation would be much appreciated

Sorry, typo. WOT is wide open throttle. Occasionally EFI cars will get stupid in cold weather. It's exasperated I'd the battery goes dead. Charge the battery up and crank it while holding your foot to the floor -- AKA clear-flood. You said you had air, spark and fuel. Maybe too much fuel?

When ever I think one of the 320s I own is flooded, I take each of the spark plugs out and look to see if wet, if the plug is wet I clean the plug, then I take my wood stove lighter with the long tip and light off the cylinder thru the spark plug hole, I keep lighting it till it doesn't burn anymore, I do this one plug at a time, I do 1,2,3,4, then I try starting it again, if it floods again then I repeat, but then I remove the gas line from before the fuel pump, once it starts, while running I push the fuel line back onto the fuel pump, it always starts by the second round as it cannot get fuel so it doesn't flood.
I have no love for stock 320 carbs, and I hate 320 distributors, this is something that bugs me to no end, as I would love to put modern carbs and distributors on my rare U320, but that would likely fly like a brick with some of the purists that are on other forums I am on, even though all that is reversible.

Possibly too much fuel. I know I've read somewhere that a small drop in battery output fucks with these engines, I just can't find it again. Same with fuel pressure(that one I can find) so my other move was gonna be to get a fuel pressure gauge and make sure it was up to par. Just leaning towards battery because a. I already have a charger, so it's free. And b. It ran perfectly prior to having to sit for the snow.

Do you have any kind of scanner available? That would at least let you know if the temp sensor was reading correctly. That would be #1 culprit for flooding.
Do you hear the fuel pump when you cycle the key?

I don't have any kind of scanner, just what I can get to through climate control that didn't tell me anything.fuel pump does turn on when key is cycled

So went out to put the battery on a charger, decided to turn it over for shits and giggles...the bitch fired right up. Something just got wet and took forever to dry out maybe?

Batteries hate cold weather. Blame that without anything else to go on.

That's what I thought originally. But even after it warmed up decently but was still wet as fuck it didn't wanna fire.wasn't until we had a couple dry days in a row that it decided to work.
