The answer is yes. A crack in a manifold is much worse than just the oil leak. Manifold cracks are generally caused by severe overheating or improper assembly of parts. A crack in a manifold can cause oil to leak but the oil leak is inconsequential as the crack renders the engine unusable safely, without replacing the manifold. Running an engine with a cracked manifold is very bad for the rest of the engine and your own safety.
can exhaust manifold leak cause you to burn oil
A bad intake manifold or manifold gasket can cause water to leak into the oil. Some newer cars have plastic manifolds and they will crack from age.
no...sounds like an exhaust leak could also be a crack in the manifold
A manifold leak is usually in reference to a failure of the intake manifold gasket. It can leak air, oil or coolant. It can leak to the outside of the engine or internally into the engine. A manifold leak may also refer to the Exhaust manifold that is leaking exhaust fumes from a bad gasket or a crack in the manifold.
Upper intake manifold plenum leak/crack most likely. If its blowing out coolant then you probably have a bad head gasket.
A cracked engine block can cause different symptoms depending on where the crack is. The coolant could leak into the water or a cylinder. The crack could cause low compression in a cylinder. The crack could also leak coolant into the oil.
Overheated, exhaust leak, oil leak on manifold-hard to speculate
It sounds like there may be a leak. If oil is leaking down on the manifold it will cause alot of smoke.
engine oil leak
Usually when you leak oil that's an indication that the intake manifold gaskets need to be replaced or your intake manifold is shot.
