Default Please help !

Hey everyone .
Im new to these forums , i desparately need some help. I have a 99 dodge ram 1500 5.2L
I just replaced my plenum and intake gaskets , i did everything by the book as far as torqueing everything to spec. It was seated properly and everything . The problem is that now that everything is back together , when i started it there was a tremendous knocking coming from the driver side valvecover area and a ton of smoke blowing from the exhaust ! What the heck happened ?? There is also alot of vaccume at the oil fill cap . When you take the cap off it trys to suck the cap back into place I have also replaced the IAT sensor .I dont understand , please help me ! Thank you so much for any possible help !
Sincerely ,

( Up the creek )
