    Does not appear to have leaked from above. The leak is dark and slimy as if it were oil... is that even possible to have an oil leak at the intake manifold??? Thanks for the advice

    If my engine looked that clean I would be boasting about it , plastering pics of it on Pintrest, having Christmas cards made of it etc. :boink: no worries there bud. Wipe it off with a rag and re-evaluate come Spring...

    Thanks! I've worked hard to maintain it. I've learned a lot but my mystery leak is beyond my knowledge level. You've given me some piece of mind.:fingerscrossed:
