Leaking intake plenum

I doubt a leaking plenum would cause it not to start. Usually a leaking plenum would cause an air leak and make the engine run too fast.
Any trouble codes stored ? Will it start using carb cleaner spray ?

Ford expedition 2007 engine crank but wont start and engine light blinking 8 times

You will need to do some testing here to find out why truck will not start,
this may be a bad fuel pump but lets check, a quick test is to spray starting fluid into throttle body. you will need to remove the intake boot to get to throttle body to spray, you will also need to open throttle plate with finger . with plate open spray fluid for 5 sec, then release the plate and put boot back on and try to start truck. if this is a fuel problem then truck should start and run for a few seconds and then die out. if it does this then i would say the fuel pump is bad,

A quicker test is to have someone banging on the bottom of the tank while someone to trying to start it, and if it starts then pump is bad, this is not a definite way but a quick way, try this first and then starting fluid. good day.

Your idle circuit is clogged you only use this circuit when your in lower rpms try first some seafoam in your tank and keep it running it just might save you some costly repairs it will clean the inside of the idle jet

A cold engine needs more fuel to run. The choke helps this by blocking the normal air flow.If you can get your hand over the carb intake try one finger at the time untill it will warm up. If it will just idle let it idle till it gets warm. The choke is so you can hope on and ride right away.

2007 cadillac cts 3.6 motor...engine stalls. runs slightly rough during start up and then will die very occasionally taking off, hesitates and "jumps" between 40 to 50 mph. Does not write to code so...

CTS are very sensitive to problems with the hose between the air filter box and the intake. If it is not on good or leaks, it will cause the car to run rough, or die immediately after starting.
