Well this just trurned into "what the hell just happened to my car!?" I went to drain out the oil today for a change and when I opened up the drain plug the oil that came out was milky and wreeked of a combo of fuel and coolant. It seems like what I thought, the leak is in the manifold and coolant/ fuel is leaking out into underneath the manifold in that little tray above the cam (dont know what its called. Any Tips on what I should do next?

I'd do a quick compression check first, and then yank the intake manifold off. It's not rare that the intake manifold gaskets leak at the corners if not installed properly.

And then one day you find, 10 years have got behind you, no one told you when to run, you missed the starting gun...
