    Hello all -
    Curious to see what the forums thoughts may be on these images... Does this look like a cracked head? The coolant / oil mix around the two bolt holes doesn't look good - Car wasn't showing any signs of coolant / oil mixing in the pan or in the cooling system...
    Thanks!

    Looks like it's just a bad intake gasket. Also if you're still running the coolant tube that goes to the egr spacer it could be the gasket for the egr spacer. If bad that gasket could cause coolant to be sucked into the intake. If your car was not smoking or running hot or missing it just may be one of the above.
