Default I think i found my problem...

Hey guys i had a nasty missfire a few days back and i think i pinpointed my problem. When i took out the COPs for cyl. 6 and 7 i noticed a little pool of coolant in the plug hole on top of the plug. I think the coolant was making the plug arch and missfire. The only thing is how did it get there?... Well im thinking my intake manifold gasket is leaking. This little bit of coolant has collected over almost two years since i've installed this new manifold. What do you guys think about this?

Sound like you might have the answer. Check the gasket.
