EA flooding prevents ignition

My EA Fairmont has recently started flooding when I go to start the motor. Removing the spark plugs shows them saturated every time.

Is there anything other than the EMC that could cause this?

It is an MPFI engine...

Any ideas on repair costs would also be appreciated...

One suggestion is possibly leaking injector(s) as pressure does remain for some time in fuel line after turning engine off...?

If your injectors need a clean, try some Toyota Injector Cleaner, best there is, according to some.

Got it fixed

Turned out the problem was with the Distributor. It was still the original, and had done over $250,000Km.
