    So...this isn't a good place to ask what tires are best?

    I got a 2024 Mirage ES, and I flooded it the other day.

    I was parked in, so I backed the truck out, started the Mirage, backed it out, shut it off, realized I was in the street still, started back up, moved it, shut it off, realized I was blocking the neighbors driveway, started it up, put it in reverse, then the engine died. Then I tried to start it, and it cranked a long time, then it started and was at 200 RPM, running very rough, the throttle didn't help, then it died.

    Then I put the foot to the floor, cranked it, and it started up at a low RPM, then it went to 6,000. So that did work.

    So it does happen on the 2024's. I need to add, it was about 40F, or about 5C outside.

    Interesting lock dot 2. It makes me realize, and makes me wonder if I'll remember, to let off that throttle quickly when starting a flooded engine. I realize that the foot to the floor puts the starting procedure in a "flooded" mode (probably not explaining that right, but I'm guessing you know what I mean). However, at some point (probably soon) after the engine "starts" that mode probably changes from flooded mode to floored mode. I hope I realize that if I ever flood mine.

    Makes me cringe to think about a dry engine hitting red line upon start. Course, yours wasn't exactly dry as you had started it a couple times already. Anywho...
