1999 SL2
Default Fuel injectors stuck open and flooding engine

I have a 1999 sL2. It had been running fine but was a little hard at start up sometimes. I got an engine light a couple of weeks ago. It went off after a few days. Went to start it the other day and would just turn over. Have spark. Fuel pressure goes up but drops after a few seconds. Checked inside cylinders and they are full of gas. Dried cylinders out, disabled fuel pump and injectors and checked again. It was dry. I have not checked injectors yet, don't have a noid light, but wondering what chances are all four would be bad and stuck open. What are possibilities for other causes?

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

The first thing I would check in a flooding scenario is the Engine Coolant Temp Sensor, If your sensor has cracked or failed the computer is getting false readings from that sensor and running the engine extreamly rich.
