Chevy 350 Intake Manifold Gasket Leak
Use the updated intake manifold gaskets and 2 torque the intake manifold bolts with a torque wrench to specification.
Chevy 350 intake manifold gasket leak. The location of the sealing beads on some gaskets has also been revised. I ve narrowed down the issue to the intake gaskets not sealing correctly. An overheated engine is another reason of the failing intake manifold gaskets. If this info saved the day buy me a beer.
Sealer won t help that. The 4 bolts in the middle of the manifold are not blind and go into the lifter valley area and can leak oil if the threads are not sealed. The 4 bolts on each end of the manifold are this way. Start the car and let it idle for a while.

Intake manifolds can leak in two ways either through coolant leaking out of the intake manifold gaskets or air leaking into the manifold outside of the normal air passageways. They have become oil soaked. You will need a bottle of carburetor cleaner water in a spray bottle or starter fluid to attempt these next steps.
A new gasket is what s needed. Take the carburetor cleaner and spray it where the intake manifold is attached to the engine. In every time you do not appear the coolant to be leaking. The bolt however can leak coolant from the gasket area up through the bolt hole.
Sometimes coolant will not leak in the intake manifold gasket directly go to the intake manifold. This may produce a distinct coolant smell along with steam and drips or puddles of coolant underneath the vehicle. Some intake manifold gaskets also seal engine coolant and if the gasket wears out it may lead to a coolant leak. Listen closely to what it sounds like.
I ve tried two different sets of gaskets the edl 7201 0 060 gaskets and felpro 1266 0 120 gaskets. Diagnosing intake manifold leaks let s start with vacuum leaks. Another symptom of a faulty intake manifold gasket is coolant leaks. Continuous coolant leaking is the cause of overheated engine.
