Tomorrow I will pull the cables off the starter and the block and try to clean them up real good. I will report back any success.

Hold up on trying to start it anymore Sam... your symptoms aren't the typical...but.....You have a "1997 Pontiac Bonneville SE"

Please pull a spark plug and tell me if it'* wet with coolant.

Dan I took you advise and pulled all the wires and cleaned all of the connections. Put everything back together and still click click click. Bil I took your advise and pulled all the spark plugs. Did not see any signs of coolent, but saw tons of gas. I mean so much gas it was leaking out everywhere. Most of the gas was coming from cylinders 2 and 5. If i leave those spark plugs out I can get the engine to crank no problem minus the gas shooting out everywhere. So I have a spark tester and hooked up coming off the ignition coils and the light lit up for each one, however it seemed some were brighter than the others. So back to square one again. Have power coming out of the coils and still have gas pouring out of cylinders 2 and 5 every time I crank it over. Any thoughts now? Bad injectors? IS there a way to disable the fuel pump from a fuse or relay so I can get all the gas out of the block? Hopefully the EPA doesn't stop by because it smells like a petrol station infront of my house!!! Thanks to all. Sam

Also I now have tried to unplug all the fuel injectors. I gotta get all that gas out before anything will work!! Can anyone confirm that unplugging all the injectors will cut off all fuel to the cylinders?

Pull all the plugs. Then put your foot to the floor and crank the engine over a good 10 seconds a couple of times to clear the cylinders.

Once you do that..toss in a fresh set of plugs and try to fire it up. Expect it to sputter because you probably can't get all the fuel out of all the cylinders. Keep it running and get it to rev a little..that will clear it out. Should be back in business after that.

I've actually done that second part on cars that drank too much coolant with an UIM failure. 3 cylinders is all you need to get it going

There is a fuse for the fuel pump, it'* on the passenger side under the glove box. But I don't recall which fuse it is. It'* labeled.

If after clearing the fuel out, it happens again, you will want to check your injectors.

Well I finally got all the fuel out of the cylinders. Went to P#pB#ys and got some new spark plugs. Turns out they sold me the wrong ones. They were to long and smashed into my pistons. After all this crazyness I broke down and had it towed to the shop. Got a call today saying the Fuel Pressure Regulator had gone out. My guy replaced that and then found fuel in the oil! So oil change and new correct plugs were put in. Will find out tomorrow the final results, there is still questions about weather or not I have a busted valve from the spark plug mishap. There was lots of porcilin and possible metal left in the cylinders from the impact on the plugs. Will let everyone know the final outcome tomorrow. I just wanted to say thanks for everyones input into my problem and I hope that my post may help someone else in the future. Thanks again to Dan and Bill for all your help!!!!!!

Ouch, wrong length plugs is a major screw up. I bit late now, but I always double check my plugs by looking at the numbers and visually comparing them. Good luck.

Actually that could have broken a piston. Which may lead to the fuel in the oil. Have your mechanic check compression. If there'* any issues, head straight to the parts store and get a manager to file a report on it. The parts store may be buying you a new engine.

Make sure to find all you receipts. It'* never your fault that they gave you the wrong parts.
