Just as joe said jump starting it works wonders, and to some people it is considerbly easier. Ive owned mine for about 2 years and about 3 weeks ago it was flooded for the first time and just like joe 2nd gear at about 20 mph does the trick!

Works everytime! I swear. just keep a Philips screw driver in the car at all

1 minute de-flood procedure:
-Remove driver side rear seat(it just pops loose) and disconnect fuel pump wire.
-Then turn the engine over for 20 seconds with gas pedal to floor.
-Wait 20 seconds for starter to cool.
-After that have your fingers on the fuel pump plug(but don't plug it in!)
-Push gas pedal down 1/3 of the way and start turning engine over.
-Plug fuel pump while turning the engine over.

-Starts right up!
