i have a 91 Teg- while out for a test drive the engine died i pop the hood to find gas flowing out of my air intake. tried to start it and it turned over for a split second before the engine appeared to lock up. towed it home and pulled out the plugs in hope of releasing sum pressure. when i turnd the key over i just got an abnormal amount of fuel blowing out of the spark plug hole. cylinders also have standing fuel in them and oil has fule in it now to. does anyone know what would cause this or have some good opinions as to where or what i should look? noobie to the site i really hope i posted this in the right spot

You attempted starting the car with no spark plugs in it? That was absolutely the wrong thing to do. It seems as though your first problem went completely ignored so I'll try to address that first. When you say "gas flowing out of my air intake" do you mean the intake manifold? If you're talking about the intake manifold that may not have been fuel, but coolant. If you are indeed referring to the intake tubing arm, I am seriously confused.

Secondly, what did you do to fix this free-flowing gasoline going all over your engine bay before you tried starting the car again? And how do you know that there is "free-standing fuel in the cylinders"? You mean you can look down in to the holes where the spark plugs are supposed to be and see oil? That may be the result of a bad gasket. Some pictures of what you're talking about could probably help.
