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.

Can a crack in a manifold cause an oil leak?

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.

What happens with an exhaust manifold leak?

The leak can be from a cracked manifold, or from a bad gasket where it attaches directly to the engine. This leak is before the O2 sensor, so gives a false reading and may remain undetected. This is a serious issue! Exhaust leak from the manifold will allow the harmful CO2 emissions to enter the cabin. Exhaust leak will also cause decreased performance of your engine, and decreased fuel economy.
