Well my car wont start all of a sudden.. I took off the upper intake manifold to put in a new gasket and put it all back together and now the car will not start.

It cranks over and sometimes it feels like its about to then it dies and dosent feel like it will start at all. If you wait it will almost start again. As it is cranking it blows a lot of white smoke.

Ive checked everything and i cant figure it out ...

any ideas.. thanks

you sure you didnt put one of the coolant lines into a vacume port? that would cause white smoke and your car wouldnt start...have you pulled the plugs? if that was the case they would probably be all wet after tryin to start it...

White smoke = blown headgasket. That's the only thing I can think of.

im pretty sure i put the coolant lines in the right spot.. Ill have to double check that. I blew air in the lines and didnt hear any leaks on intake manifold.

The car dosent have a BHG.. it ran prefect before i did this

check the coolant lines. coolant lines runs into the throttle body to cool the air down. make sure you got the lines going to the right place.

ok i checked the lines they seem to be correct..

I got the car to acutally start! Its still blowing white smoke. Its backfireing after reving up.. Im thinking it could be missing some and not burning off all the gas in the engine. It smokes very bad after the backfires

What do you think?

I just pulled the plugs that were in the for like 15 mins of run time and they are carbon fouled like crazy! What would cause it to foul up so quick?

Thanks

to cool the air down?!!? how would 200 degree water cool the air down...lots of people bypass the throttle body by connecting the coolent lines together

they are there for cold conditions so the throttle body doesnt stick or something like that

they basically just heat up your intake air, i removed mine and drove it in freezing weather and never had a problem

i know you said you went over the vacume connections and everything but are you sure that the map sensor is hooked up and into a good clear source? and what about the FPR? what fuel pressure are you running with the vacume line disconnected at idle?

those are the only things i can really think of..unless its a big ass leak somewhere

It doesn't sound like this would be your problem, but I had tons of white smoke pouring out of my exhaust when I blew a turbo seal, but I guess it can't hurt to take a look in your ic pipe to see if you've got any oil in there.

AEM EMS, Fuel System with 720 cc injectors duel pumps, no maf...
When did you do this conversion? And when you did are you sure you wired the injector clips right? I am having a TON of white smoke too and I cant figure it out. My compression numbers seem to be mediocre but consistent not hinting at a BHG especially considering I JUST changed it and I didnt think you can blow a headgasket of a car thats never really ran over but 4k rpms. But I have the same problem a TON of white smoke out of my downpipe.

Here is a vid to give you an idea of whats going on:

What version AEM are you running? There was a problem with some of the older ones that left the injectors open while the car was off, filling the cylinders with gas.

it could be the aem's fault but it never had a problem before this. It is dumping large amounts of fuel in the engine! I pulled evey efi fues and the pumps fuses and cranked over the engine with no plugs in and it was shooting gas everywhere! Im almost positive is a fuel issue but i dont know how to fix it.

On the wideband it said it was idling at 10.4 to 1 ar after i fixed all my leaks, which is pig rich but not stuck wide open.. Do they only get stuck open after a WOT run?

Thanks

Yeah I didn't have a problem with it before... it dumped about 3-4 gallons into the engine/exhaust... which needed to be drained out..
