Really bad car troubles may bring to mind another device that used a magneto - the old Number Fifty blasting machine...

PS - One tip on FI cars: If you do manage to flood the engine, press the gas pedal all the way to the floor and crank it for 5-10 seconds. Doing so turns off the fuel in most cars and allows you to clear the flooding.
I tried it more than a few times the day it would not start. Enough so that the battery started getting weak. I tried holding the pedal on the floor several times. It did not help.

It was indicated to me that something was not right with the air/fuel mixture. I cannot remember how they worded it though. Now, it runs smoother and somewhat warmer, but not hot. It does not even sound the same. Back in the carb days, one would thin the mixture by adjusting the needle valves. How that would be done with computer controlled fuel injection, I do not know. The extra heat could be the result of a thinner mixture.

I am sure. It already needs a quick visit again. The majority of the windshield washer fluid is being pumped out on the passenger side just behind the tire. Just a little hits the drivers side windshield. I had this corrected about a year ago. I hate it when I have to repeat something like this.
