Engine flooded while driving

Driving around tonight, around the city, I notice a slight gas smell. Turn around to head home, and as I'm cruising at about thirty, the car starts to bog down, then eventually dies. I popped the hood after trying to start it and gas literally poured out of my WAI filter. WTF would cause it to suddenly flood like that?

After getting it towed, I'm not even sure it flooded.... there was a huge pool of gas under the car. Haven't had a chance to look around yet to see where it might be leaking, but since it was INSIDE the filter, I assume that it has to be flooding?

Not 100% but maybe the fpr is leaking into the vacuum line.

On an older 3.1 a guy brought to me this was the case and literally the whole intake tract was full of raw fuel.

I'll have to take a look at that. I just replaced the FPR last year, it better not be that again.

Okay, so now that I had a chance to look at it in daylight, looks like the line popped off the top of the FPR. No big deal, got that ziptied down to at least hold it. However, when I turn the key to on (not trying to start it), and go just manually open the TB, gas just pours out of the motor. Why does it keep flooding the engine with gas when I'm not even trying to start it? Did my FPR go bad again, and its just pouring gas in?

FPR receives manifold vacuum signal. In the case of a ruptured diaphragm in the FPR, fuel could be forced through the vacuum line - remember, the fuel pump will run for about 2 seconds at KOEO to build rail pressure. Raw fuel in the inlet ducting further supports this. Disconnect vacuum line from FPR and key on: is fuel expelled from the nipple?

My first guess. A blown FPR wouldn't flow quite that much fuel.

Don't feel too bad, my fuel pump died almost a month ago. Except my original had 129K on it.

I'm at 59.5k miles.... I've had 2 LIMs, 1 FP and 2 FPRs, not to mention who knows how many window motors/blower resistors etc etc etc


I've officially started to shop for a new car to replace this one, and its probably one of two specific vehicles

Damn, My LIM just went once, all four original window regulators reside in the car, and my blower motor resistor JUST went yesterday.

OH? Part out?

Everyone but me just must have horrible luck with GA's?? I owned mine from 23k - 64k and I never once had a single problem with the car. Changed the oil regularly and flushed everything once, never had brake problems, window problems, anything. My friend owns it @ 72k right now and he has yet to have a problem as well.

My old GA SE was the same except the LIM one time in the 80k miles we owned it.
