Anti-Freeze in intake manifold and on intake valves
So i was going about my business replacing my knock sensor, when I pulled the intake manifold out i realized my valves had green all over them, after further inspection I realized that the intake manifold also has what appears to be anitfreeze in it. I took some pictures so you can see exactly what I'm talking about. I'm assuming this means that my IC went bad (Still running stock IC)? Guess its a good thing I caught the problem, and this may be why I cant get 70 MPh with my X-charger....?
The manifold is out not and i'm going to pull the IC out and take a look, I'll report back with my findings. And pictures

Oliver,IC uses water instead of antifreeze....It sounds like a blown head gasket or something like that!!! Get us some pics so we can help you out!!!!

Anti freeze does not run through the ICer....sounds like a cracked head or blown head gasket...

Oh, well nvm my previous statement then haha. Wait just for clarification...water is pulled from outside the ski and run through the IC? If you need more pictures let me know.
This has been a bad month for me and motors so far haha...looks like I'm going to have 2 blown HG maybe 2 Cracked Heads....sheesh

Okay, I knew it cooled the exhaust but for some odd reason I didnt think it cooled the IC too haha
