Well, first my fuel pump went out. I figured that out because fuel pressure was reading zero and car would crank but not start. Got that replaced, but then was told the fuel regulator was bad, but was running and drove 10 miles, but was flooding it. Does that make sense?

    yes it does. when the fuel regulator goes bad they either leak externnally or they leak internnally. the int leak will cause your fuel pressure to increase by like 10 lbs this will leave your injectors open somewhat and cause flooding. it needs to be fix soon
