    Is the coolant leaking out? If it is not leaking on the ground check your oil dipstick to see if the oil is a milky white color. If it is this color the coolant is going in the engine and the car should not be driven to avoid any further damage which will cost you more in repairs.

    Second look would be a good option.Not positive , but don't think there are any coolant passages on that intake.Maybe T-stat housing? Maybe you meant HEADGASKET?
