Ride it around for a few minutes to clean up the plug.

People also ask, how do you start a flooded outboard motor?

Re: Starting a flooded engine. To restart when flooded, open the throttle all the way (with no choke), to admit as much air as possible, and crank the motor until the excess fuel is expelled. If the plugs are soaking wet, you can dry them first (with compressed air, or laid out in the hot sun), to aid starting.

Will a flooded engine fix itself?

Perhaps the best remedy for a flooded engine is time. Simply open the hood of your car and let excessive fuel evaporate for as long as you can. After about 20 minutes try starting your car again without hitting the gas pedal. If this still does not work, you may have to check your spark plugs.
