oil in the intake tube to the throttle body, drinks coolant like crazy, and leaves small puddles of it when parked, but doesnt get too high in temps, the only spot on the motor that isnt dry is the area around the hg, and is lower on oil after a change a week ago, any help would be appriciated, also when removing the hose that vents from the intake tube to the plenum i noticed that there is a bunch of coiled up wire in the pipe the hose connects too, is that some sort of filter or debris? i dont want to yank it out if its ment to be there, thanks
