How do you clear a 2 stroke flooded engine?

Can you flood a 2 stroke engine?

What does a choke do on a 2-stroke engine?

When a two stroke starts up, the choke cuts off a large portion of the air supply, causing more vacuum, so more fuel is burned at the start. ... On an auto-choke, this vacuum will open the manifold to let more air into the engine and they will also let more air into the engine the more heat that they produce.

How long does it take for a flooded engine to clear?
