Still trying to see if I can catch car taking another snakey lick of coolant but since I have had my eye on it the darn thing wont do it again. Still suspect LIM Gasket issue (05 3800) but the jury and my oil sample is still out on that.

I have seen some oiling dirt grim on the lower intake. Thought it might have been comming from end seals but I also find some grime further up (like behind spark plug bank) and suspect it is traveling down somewhat.

I assume if an lim gasket can leak coolant in or out it could also seep oil to the outside as well ? ? ?

Thanks, P.S. Orange is just where I wiped the end seal a bit.

Sorry picture is so large, my picture editing skills not perfected yet.

Other parts of intake looks somewhat oily, I am thinking valve covers are weeping a bit.

Almost looks like my pics... http://www.naioa.com/v2/module.....mp;t=37514

I'm almost thinking mine is a combination of the LIM and valve covers.
