Default upper intake coolant lines help needed.

Well on the say home from work in my 95 gt i observed smoke coming from under the hood. So when I got home (live clise to work) i checked it out and seen that the coolant line on the upper intake that goes into the side of the intake (driver side upper) was leaking I'm assuming from the fitting....what's a way to fix this?

Make sure the hose is not ripped/cracked. Make sure the clamp is tight.

Residual oil. If you stopped the leak the smoke will stop after the oil burns off.

im glad you dont have a coolant line to your upper intake, because then i would have to go figure out where mine was

as far as your 'oil line to the back of the lower intake' goes, you sure its an oil line? i dont know why there would be an oil line running to the intake, lower or upper, but i couldnt get the balancer off my car, so who knows.

i am beyond stupid when it comes to engines, but i think you might be talking about the line that goes from your PCV to underneath your upper intake?
at least, thats where my PCV is, right at the back of the lower intake. cant see it to easy, have to feel around pretty much. not sure what hose you say is off, but i know the line from my PCV to my upper gets oil in it, and i know if that thing comes off, you may get some oil on hot parts of your engine.
i would say clean up any oil you find, make sure your hoses are on good, and then let these guys know if youre still having troubles.

as he said the pcv just pulls out of the hole so be sure tha it is seated properly and the line isn't cracked. It should not keep smoking, and smoking, and smoking or something it wrong needless to say.

Bought a new pcv valve...so were going to see what that does. Had a buddy tell me if the pcv is clogged then the engine gaskets could start leaking due to pressure but will see.
