Do you think it's possible....

Ok,

My car won't start. Misfire detected in cylinder 2.

Lots of smoke when it does occasionally start.

Anyway, do you think it's possible that i could have litterally flooded my cylinders with gas? I've tried starting it with pedal up, down and everywhere in between, maybe 50 times this last week.

There is standing liquid in the cylinders (cylinder 2 i can shake the car and see it swoosh around.

I stuck a rolled up paper towel down there and it came up smelling like gasoline, and not really like antifreeze at all.

Anyway, just wondering if anyone had any thoughts on that little chestnut. ;-)

What kind of b15?

Specs have drive by wire...so I thought it was very difficult to "Flood" the engine.....Maybe. Though, it sounds like a coolant/HG issue. (Even though you said it didn't look like antifreeze...)

If you've got a conventional throttle actuator, then the easy fix for a flooded engine is to wait a few hours, and try again. Though, again, I've never flooded an EFI engine..

'04 Spec V, Bone Stock ~ Except for all the stuff I've done to it.

if its milky and your coolant has dissappeared and you got smoke coming out more than likely blown headgasket, compression check can help to tell better.
Have Fun.
If you are in GA and want to dump the car let me know.

How are the plug/injector looking for cyl 2? Tried swapping for another?

Coolant level?

Might want to do a blackstone labs oil analysis to determine the health of the motor.
