I found out that I need my intake manifold gasket repaired. I have been losing coolant and noticed in the last 2days white smoke when I first start the engine, then clears after a few mins. Wound this be cuased by the intake issue? I have no milky oil or bubbles in my coolant tank.

if this has been happening for a long time its possible there is damage to the cylinder head gaskets. You will need to have a cylinder head leakage test done. If the cylinder head gaskets are leaking you will not find a shop that will replace them as the cylinder heads rarely come off of these vehicles without damaging the engine block, 99% of shops out there will want to sell you a reman engine.
