Sounds like leaking fuel injectors.

What's a quick fix to getting it going?

If it is flooding out there is no quick fix. The problem has to be fixed.

So replacing the fuel injectors is what I need to do? How costly is that type of repair if done on my own?

What size is the engine, and also I would do some fuel testing before just jumping into this so you are not just throwing money at this.

It's A V-6

It's a ford they circled the problem for you, but no it's the fuel filter or pump most likely, if u have a chance get rid of this vehicleasap they are horrible and almost everything on them has been recalled, including the engine!

Each fuel injector is around $40

Fuel pump or fuel filter for a flooding problem? I don't think so.
