ok to start off wheni i start the car sometimes the car will run really rough and shakes like crazy and to add on to it my car eats coolant when i was filling the coolant the other day i knowticed that there was a puddle of coolant of coolant right in front of the inteake manifold next to the driver side head i could swear the i saw drips of coolant coming from the seal between the intake manifold and head

the problem is that i wiped all the coolant away and it didnt come back and the system pressurized and i never drop any coolant on the ground

could this just be an intermitent leak and a possible blown head gasket?

and i also knowticed that even after a 2 hour drive i will still have a little steam coming from the tail pipe just enough to leave a wet spot on the ground after like 5 minutes


i have a bone stock 3.8 and its a 96


thank you

I would suspect a head gasket. Remove your plugs and see what they look like. If you were to replace the head gasket , the intake leak would be taken care of at the same time as you have to remove that to do them.
