Put the manifold back on , check all hoses going to the intake as some could be blown off and start the car
EVERY Focus SVT I start I hold the throttle to the floor till I hear the engine spinning then let off the throttle
You have a LOT of oil going to your intake , this is from the breather off the valve cover and the PCV and why I always tke these vents off the intake and vent them to the grown
Tom, Do you put a plain rubber cap on the intake side (that would normally connect to the valve cover -NOT- the PCV valve)?
