    ??Flooded and fouled the plugs?? Change plugs (use OEM)?? What symptoms leading up to this problem? Check engine light on for a while?

    No check engine lights on and scanner doesn't show any either. I bought it in its current condition and don't have any history. I can turn motor over a couple turns and it hits. Keep turning it and stops hitting. I can turn over few turns let off turn over few turns and it will hit every time. It only quits hitting if I keep turning motor over.
