Default Flooded engine

So my battery had died last week do to some ****** electrical problems I'm havin with the car. But when I was jumping the car trying to get it started I had been pumping te gas. So I'm assumin the car is flooded now because the battery is fully charged now and it just turns and turns but disnt start. I tried to start everyday for the past week and still nothing What should I check? And if it is flooded how could i fix that?

There is no "carburator pump" to flood the motors on these cars so most likely it is not flooded. If you think it is, crank the motor with the gas pedal to the floor. This is the "clear flood" mode. The motor will turn, the plugs will fire, but the injectors will not add fuel. This will rid the combustion chanber of excess fuel. You need to check if you have spark and fuel.

Does it turn over. If not might be a lose battery cable my battery neg was lose at ground and was causing my car to not start. I also had a lose temp sensor causing to flood car it was the one on my water pump . I have a 95 . I had to change my oil to there was gas in oil.

check fuel pressure and spark. Pumping the pedal on an EFI car will not flood it.

I presume that the clear flood mode also works on the C5?
