98 Camry V6 -- Ran out of gas -- overloads with fuel, wont hold idle

Asked by Oct 21, 2019 at 05:47 AM about the 1998 Toyota Camry LE V6

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

overloads with fuel, wont hold idle at all, just chokes out and dies, billows white
smoke out muffler. So, I've been thru all fuses under steering column and under
hood, checked for power with multimeter. Not convinced its fuel pump, cuz its
just dumping too much. Could it be a clogged fuel injector? Before this
happened, I had NO fuel issues, at all. I was having some electrical things, and I
changed out the 100amp alternator fuse. However, when this flooding
happened, it literally melted that 100amp fuse. Could be related, or not. Help me
out? I dont want to pay a shop--seriously! Diagnosing could take forever, cuz
when I disconnected battery diagnostic codes were wiped.
