Hello lets begin had white smoke from tail pipe. This is a chevy ventyre 1998. Chage upper and lower intake gaskets. Checked cylinder pressure, was good. Than started engine for a sec or two seem to run fine. But alas after adding antifreeze, and started it again?

What did I do wrong?

90psi is low for a cylinder and you have a 25% difference between the highest and lowest. I think the 90 psi cylinders may have the problem.
