You don't say why you believe the engine is flooding with gas. The injectors meter the fuel but don't flood the engine the way the old carbuertors did. You neeed to take the car to an mechanic.

If you have a Carburetor on the engine then it is likely caused by the Choke sticking closed or is out of adjustment, if you have fuel injection it may be cause by a bad sensor or a cold start valve. A scan will give you the code to decipher the problem and will help you fix it. If it is fuel injection the engine light will likely be on as well.
