Fuel Injection Flooded Engine

Yes, it's possible, it's rare though, so you should be grateful if get it (like me), :)  

When the engine is cold 
  • Depress the accelerator fully and hold it. 
  • While holding accelerator fully depressed, turn the ignition switch to the START(III) position and hold it (a maximum of 10 seconds; cranking) to discharge the excess fuel. If the engine starts, the engine speed will increase suddenly; release the key and the accelerator immediately. In this case, the following steps are not necessary. 
  • Release the accelerator after cranking the engine. 
  • Without depressing the accelerator, crank the engine until it starts (a maximum of 10 seconds). 

When the engine is warm — depress the accelerator about halfway to start it.

ups..., and do not keep the starter engaged for more than 10 seconds. If the engine stalls or fails to start, wait 5 to 10 seconds before reengaging the starter; otherwise, you may damage it.
