I know the intake that the throttle body is connected to bolts to the head i can see that, but what am i missing here,do you have to pull the head to change the manifold gasket on a inline? How else would coolant be getting in cylinders?
The intake manifold, brings air & fuel into the cylinder head to each cylinder 1 thru 6, the head has separate channels within for coolant circulation, it is either when the head warps @ the bottom or the gasket cracks, that allows coolant to enter into the cylinders of the engine block.
