Intake Manifold Leak (Coolant)

(2005 Ford Explorer Sport Trac)
in Anderson, SC on August 29, 2010
Would it be okay to drive my truck to the dealership which is about 30 miles from my home with a leaking intake manifold gasket or should I have it towed? It's a small leak apparently because my vehicle is not overheating and the leakage is not noticeable on the ground once the vehicle is stopped. It had to be detected using leak detector.

How much coolant has this car been losing? I hate to say drive it and for it then to overheat, but I guess you could check the coolant level from cold, add coolant if necessary, bring a gallon of water with you and drive to the repair shop with the acceptance that if the car was to start to run hot you would call a towing service and have it towed. If it is only a very small leak you will probably be OK.
