Ok i pulled everything down and just to be sure it was a the gasket leaking. i started the car and went around the manifold with carb cleaner. Nothing happend! grr. wtf. This isnt helping me. so i wondered maybe i have aloose bolt. I go and check all the bolts holding it down and i find 1 that wasnt as tight as the rest. I dont have a torque rench, so i tested by trying to loosen gently. I proceeded to torque down the loose bolt and it turned but didtn seem to get any tighter. I im not going to strip this bolt! I turned it to a decent amount of tq and left it, but the other onces are on there really tight compaired to it! The manifold gaskets were done 2 years 50,xxx miles ago by the dealership. did they fuck up and over torque the bolts or can they just be hard to loosen?
The car normaly dosnt have the coldstart unless it has been sitting for 3 or more days.
does anyone think it could be b/c all the motor oil naturaly fell back to the pan?
any ideas plez.......
I found a way to reproduce the cold start using the intake hose. If i have it connected to the pluem and then strart to remove it, the idle gets shaky and the quicly reconnect it the idle jumps way up. It wouldnt make sence that it could be small leak b/c the size of gap i had to make to get it to do that was almost half the intake tube.
so could it also be my MAP sensor shorting out?
