Hi I'm Kevin if car is flooded remove plugs and crank engine with plugs removed . Then pop plugs in oven on low heat to dry them out (sounds rediculous but works ) this will remove fuel from cylinder
You wouldn't smell fuel if you had a fuel problem
Take them out of engine leave them out for an hour or so this should be enough just make sure you spin the engine over to remove any fuel from cylinder
Sorry for delay had to go trick or treating . Best to take plugs out and spin engine over with them removed to get rid of any fuel in cylinder
If it's flooded itself badly enough to cause a non start the plugs will need to be removed and checked to get re running
