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. Our technicians tell us that operating the engine with a coolant/oil mix can result in internal engine damage. Replacing the intake manifold gasket should correct these leaks.

MY MONTANA IS STILL LEAKING AND MIXING WITH THE OIL ENGINE. IT'S OVER HEATING AND STOP AT ALL TIMES. AFTER 3KMs,IT'S WARM UP VERY HIGH. I LIVE IN OTTAWA, CANA AND I NEED A GARAGE TO FIX IT FOR. IS IT A RECALL FROM THE MANUFACTURE?

Started leaking oil two weeks after a oil change. Took it to one shop they said nothing was wrong. Took it to another and for sure three hours later they found out it was an intake manifold. Are these things common

My oil stick showed very high level of oil in it. The color is off so it has to be leaking anti-freeze into the engine.
