The intake manifold gasket may develop and external engine oil or coolant leak. In some cases, an internal coolant leak may occur causing coolant to mix with the engine oil. Running the engine with a coolant/oil mix may result in engine damage. Replacing the intake manifold gasket should correct this issue.

    EVERYDAY I PUT IN 1 QUART COOLANT AND IT DOES APPEAR TO BE A MANIFOLD ISSUE. WHERE I PUT THE OIL IN IT APPEARS TO HAVE A BUTTERSCOTCH PUDDING SLUDGY MESS AROUND THE RIM. THIS COULD BE A SIGN.
