Won't start after intake gasket replacement

Just put it back together after replacing intake manifold gasket. Won't start, seems to fire intermittent but won't stay. Replaced all plugs and wires at the same time.

    thanks for your help. It was the plug wires. The numbers cast into the intake are wrong. As if the intake should be rotated 180 degrees.
    Thanks again.

I replaced the head gasket on my 96 4 wheel drive Tracker 4 door 1.6 is the engine size. When I removed the intake manifold and fuel rail there were 2 hoses on the manifold, one goes to the fuel rail and...


Hi Rich the best way to determine what hose is the fuel feed is to disconnect the hoses and place the ends in a container or empty bottle and switch the ignition on for a few seconds and then see which one supplys fuel or the other cause could be it needs time to regain fuel pressure since ir was disconnected.
Hope this helps

GMC 2000 sierra pick up 1500 sounds like it wants to start but won't turn over. Battery sounds good so I guess battery and alternator are ok. For several years fuel gauge doesn't work and...


It sure could be. But, first...by "won't turn over" you do mean it cranks at normal speed but won't start?
A simple test of the fuel pump is to stand by tank and listen as someone turns key to on. When first turned to on, your pump will activate for 2 or 3 seconds, pressurizing the fuel system, and then shut off if the engine computer doesn't get a cranking signal. Do you hear it come on? If not, then something's not turning your pump on. If you can hear it buzz on briefly, then maybe it's your filter. Another test: Spray a little starting fluid into your intake manifold (remove the big hose going into intake manifold) while someone tries starting it.If it doesn't fire and try to stay running, then it's probably an ignition problem. But if it does fire off, then you know it's a fuel problem-likely your pump or filter. good luck.

Just replaced the starter on a 2002 Acura RSX. had to remove the intake. after the motor warms up the RPM's start to hunt. Did not replace the intake gasket. could this be the cause?


If the RPM's are going pretty low to where the car seams like its about to die, then it could be a vaccum leak. Whick could be cause by a bad gasket or something maybe didnt get sealed right when putting everything back together. If you do decide to change the gasket, i would recommend the "Hondata Intake Manifold Gasket". Its thicker and not made from metal and also keeps your intake manifold cooler.

1998 gmc 4x4 runs poorly and sounds like a vacume,air leak .


The 5.0l and 5.7l all have this problem at some time.The lower intake gaskets are bad.and are sucking air which will cause the eng. to idle high and sound like like there is a cylinder or two that are not firing and you also may loose antifreeze.The upper intake is black/plastic and the lower is aluminum.Tightening the lower intake bolts may seem to help but once the gaskets are blown,they need to be replaced.If its sucking more air through the bad gasket than the TBI it will not get the right air to gas mixture.Check that all vacuum hoses are in good shape and the vacuum line that runs from the top of the upper intake to the brake booster is sealed good in the intake.Hope this gives you a better idea.
