I ran fluids through my new 5.o motor the other day, and then I detached a vacuum line from the intake and coolant rushed out. I was told to put new intake gaskets on and I went out and bought them, but I dont see how that will fix the problem...
Insight please :bounce2:

That or a egr gasket. However that is just a vacuum leak. The egr spacer has cooling ports so the gasket could be leaking.
