It's a 96 Mercury xri 150 efi. Runs great on low end and high end but starting and starting it after running is next to impossible. I puffs serious white smoke every time but once started it runs like a dream. Any help would be much appreciated.

Bassman, what I found with mine was the motor had to be level to start good. If it was trimmed up even just a little it was hard to start. I was told it had something to do with the float system but don't know that for sure. I know that once I found this out my Merc would fire right up every time usually without even choking it. Hope this helps.

Mecury`s oil system works off of pressure from the crankcase via a pulse valve and if the bleed in the pulse valve stops up it will do just that. Causes the tank to maintain too much pressure when motor is turned off.

So is it the bleed of or do I need to change the pulse valve?
