Which engine?  It sounds like you are getting way too much fuel.

The more details you give, the more help you will get!  Motor, hours, last thorough tune up - thanks!!

And welcome to the Bu Crew!!

Also, when?  Cold, warmed up, after sitting for an amount of time, sometimes, all the time, age of battery, charging volts when running, water temperature (in engine) when having start problems.
