good luck.

I used to think this too, but have since learned that the injectors don't actually deliver fuel to the combustion chamber unless the flapper in the metering housing is also pressed. Which makes sense, because when you perform CIS fuel system pressure tests, you need to be running the fuel pumps when the gauges are connected, however, the engine doesn't flood because you aren't typically pressing the flapper during these tests...the fuel just returns to the gas tank.
