fluid/gunk in intake
Posted by Paul Willis [Email] (more from Paul Willis) on Sat, 16 May 2020 18:40:16
Well my old 91 MCY Turbo convertible has been consuming radiator fluid. I did the head gasket a couple years ago so wouldn't suspect that. It has been getting slowly worse but have been able to drive it for a couple of months. When it warms up its a lot better but my concern in pulling the intake hose off from the air mass meter was that there was a fluid/gunk in the hose. Kind of like coolant and maybe some oil mixed. I have never had a bad head gasket behave that way. Makes me think maybe the turbo is going (375k miles) and is leaking-blowing coolant and oil through into the intake? Is that a thing? I would not think a leaky head gasket would push anything into the intake area. Thoughts?
