I'll be honest, I've never seen white smoke from a fuel issue, always a darker smoke, but I haven't seen everything. He did say it smells rich, so there could be something there then.I agree. It could be something simple to something significant. My white smoke/nonrun issue was a sunk carb float. OP’s could be a cranky EFI to blown head gasket.
OP, what does your smoke smell like? Acrid = fuel, sweet = coolant.
You can also pressure test the coolant system and see if you have a leak, especially if you think it’s coolant.
my stroked 302 starts up in a split second, as long as I prime the fuel a peddle pump or two first. If it is coming from both exhausts, then I'd say a coolant issue is now less likely, odds are less likely to have blown both head gaskets only a little. Maybe it is a fuel issue like @packagerjr is suggesting, you did mention it smells rich, and if it is the EFI system with one like you have then it would present in both exhausts.Thank you! I looked for a long time and I paid a little more than I wanted but here we are haha. It runs and drives perfectly but I hate being stuck random places cranking this thing over non stop with my fingers crossed that it will fire. It’s going to be my daily driver in a year ( lease ending) so I have time to work out the bugs.
From what I noticed it comes from both exhausts. I’m going to try to fire it up again this evening and see what it does. Otherwise I’ll be getting a compression test. I’d like to look into the starter or ignition too becuase even when it does fire it’s not fast. I’ve seen other broncos and trucks this year fire pretty quickly. I have to hold the key for a few seconds for it to catch. Or maybe that’s normal?! There’s no one around me that even has a bronco to see what theirs does so I don’t have a whole lot to compare to.
