Sorry Guys for the vague description on my earlier post about my flooded Z. Here's the deal, I have a 1982 280zx non turbo, it had a bad starter and I kept trying to start it for almost an hour till I finally gave up. The next day I replaced the starter and tried to crank it up and it wouldn't kick over. I could smell the odor of gas which led me to believe it was flooded. Also I might add that I did get a wire crossed when I was replacing the starter and happened to see some white smoke coming from the starter but ended up correcting the problem. The starter works fine now, like I said it starts with no problem but it won't kick over. Would or could my starter have screwed up something or would the previous day trying to start it with a bad starter flooded my system? Responses that I have gotten so far was to either clean my plugs or better yet replace them and check if there is an ignition problem. I haven't done nothing as of yet but plan on it today. Oh by the way how would I check my plugs for spark without hurting myself, lol.... Thanks in advance everypone......
