2007 Chrysler Crossfire Owner Manual Excerpts

If Engine Fails to Start
CAUTION!
Do not try to push or tow your vehicle to get it started. Your vehicle cannot be started this way.
Pushing with another vehicle may damage the transmission or the rear of your vehicle. See Section 6 of this manual for proper jump-starting procedures.
WARNING!
Never pour fuel or other flammable liquid into the throttle body air inlet opening in an attempt to start the vehicle. This could result in a flash fire, causing serious personal injury.
If the engine fails to start after you have followed the Normal Starting procedure, it may be flooded. Push the accelerator pedal all the way to the floor and hold it there while cranking the engine. This should clear any excess fuel in case the engine is flooded.
CAUTION!
To prevent damage to the starter, do not crank the engine for more than 15 seconds at a time. Wait 10 to 15 seconds before trying again.
If the engine has been flooded, it may start to run, but not have enough power to continue running when the key is released. If this occurs, continue cranking with the accelerator pedal pushed all the way to the floor. Release the accelerator pedal and the key once the engine is running smoothly.
If the engine shows no sign of starting after two 15- second periods of cranking with the accelerator pedal held to the floor, the Normal Starting procedure should be repeated.
