Ask Smithy Xtra Audi A4 engine flooding

Asked by Tolga

I have a 1996 Audi A4 1.8 sedan and every now and again the engine will flood and the car won't start. I have had a local mechanic check the engine but they couldn't find anything wrong...it does it about once or twice a month. Do you know what might be the reason?

It’s most unusual for a fuel-injected car to flood, but if it is flooding as you say I would check the fuel injectors, one or more could be worn and leaking.
