1994 dodge intrepid fuel probs
My fiances car is acting up
It's flooding runs rough and the inside smells like gas when she drives it
No codes are thrown so I don't think its a sensor. What could it be?

That could definatly be and probably is, one of the most common problems every assciated with EFI cars! ANYTHING? :D

First a new car flooding should not smell like gas if it has a catilitic converter it should smell like rotten eggs.

If you smell gasoline I would look for a fuel leak. No reason to ever smell fuel on a newer car unless your pumping gas. Charcaol canister lines? Pretty sure those cars have a return line and if she has recently hit something under car could have collaspsed retuen line and got a leak and cause obstruction which would raise fuel pressure and cause flooding.

Check fuel leak.

Check fuel pressure.

I would look around for a fuel leak on top of the motor,if nothing there, locate the evaporative canister and see if it is filling with gas. The vapor check valve in the tank can fail and allow raw fuel into the evap.
My money is on a fuel leak, probably injector seals.

Well I fixed it. Cleaned the maf sensor with brake cleaner.
Who woulda thunk it? ;)
