Oil in the Intake manifold?

Recommended Posts

Im in the process of checking the fuel injectors & crossover housing for problems. I just took off the throttle body and it appears that there is oil? pooled in the bottom of the first "ring" of the intake manifold...Is this indicative of a engine problem? or is this normal?...I haven't a clue :)....thanks...I'll be back later with pics.

I believe this has been discussed before and Guru said its not and issue, I think it gets pulled in and settles in that area by the PCV circuit... I don't think its a problem. Do you top off with oil as it gets low to keep it high? I am only concerned with it being 'on' the stick not necessarily to the top of the range...

Early on sailors navigated by the stars at night and the North star became the symbol for finding ones way home. Once you know where the Northstar is you can point your ship in the right direction to get home. So the star became a symbol for finding ones way home or more symbolically even finding ones path in life.

I top it off when it gets to be a 1-1.5 quarts low, and when I top it off I only fill it to the 1/2 way mark on the stick.

That is normal - it is nothing to worry about.
