Check timing belt and compression.Pull the spark plugs and inspect for fouling , if they are wet with gas replace them. If it's flooded then try cranking it wth the gas pedal to the floor-- do NOT pump it.
The spark plugs came out with gas on them. I replaced them with new ones and the car still does the same thing and i rechecked the plugs and they still came out with gas on them. The timing belt and compression both seem fine.
The compression is relatively even-120-145PSI at least in each cylinder?Try unplugging the injectors and cranking it over two or three times without the plugs in it and the distributor unplugged (no accidental spark near the fumes blowing out) Do that to dry out the cylinders , then another old school trick I've used with success is to warm the spark plugs before installing them and put a couple drops of oil into each cylinder. then hook up dist and injectors and again hold the pedal to the florr try starting it.let me know if it sounds like it's even sputtering to try to 'catch'.hope this makes a little sense. also before all of that , you said the timing belt seems fine , did you actually line it up to TDC on the crank and check the cam mark?
Might want to check the crank sensor to see if any damage from objects in water.
Sensor at crank pulley.
