    What does this mean? Blown head gasket? Or does water run through the intake also? Could it be an intake gasket?

    Depends where it is. Water runs throught the intake manifod into the intake plenum and then into the heater box. Here's a few pics of the hoses that have coolant in them. Will take more/better ones as I tear my engine down

    Edit: apparently it varies depending on year. The last pic is of a hose my 90 has that my 95 does not. Other 2 pics both trucks haveimage.jpgimage.jpgimage.jpg

    Driver side front corner, on top of the intake bolt is where I noticed it.

    No problem :fistbump:

    I'm thinking its probably the hose in the first pic but hard to tell without seeing it.

    :worthless:
