3VZFE engine floods

Recommended Posts

Hi guys

Just did rings and bearings on my v6 Camry . I reassembled the engine turned the key the thing fired for few seconds then died.. Smelled fuel so I thought I check the spark plugs and found them very wet.Can anyone explain how this is occurring? Would this be due to faulty injectors? How can I fix this.?

Any contribution on this topic will be appreciated.

The reason I asked is the 3VZ is notorious for spitting head gaskets.

You will need to get them ultrasonically cleaned and flow tested. There is a good chance the fuel has gummed them up from sitting for so long. There are also mobile injector cleaning businesses, depending on where you live.
