what up guys
ive noticed puddles of oil on my lower intake manifold. i thought the oil might have been leaking through the bolts so i put teflon tape on them and torqued them back down.
not a week went by and i have oil puddling again on the lower intake manifold.
should i get new bolts and wrap those with tape orrrrr do u guys think it can possible be the intake manifold gasket thats leaking?
if it is leakin u think its possible for the oil to get ON TOP of the intake?
cuz thats kinda weird.

lemme know what u guys think or if you have had this problem before

my intake is a trickflow track heat
just in case that matters

Ck PCV system and also the rubber gaskets between the block and lower intake. The fan may be blowing the oil on to the top of the intake.

It could be coming from your valve covers. Check those bolts to see if they are loose.

I run the breathers on the valve covers so my pcv isn't even hooked up. Someone told me it wasn't neccessary if I was running breathers but ill check that.

Are the breathers oily around the bottom of them? It could be coming out of them.

hook the pcv up, you always have blow by and it has to go some where. if your just raceing then it does'nt matter you just need to catch the oil. on the street you need to recirculate it and burn it off.
