If the intake is aluminum your antifreeze ate a hole in it.The same thing happened to me on my wifes van ,I was able to fix the hole with JBweld and 3 years later still no problems ... Good luck.

Essentially, poor design. Gm's 3.1 and 3.8 motors are notorius for them failing. Even the Lincoln 4.6 falls into the same category.

The leak would vary on the size of the hole or seal failure.

Remove the intake manifold and take it to a welding shop that works with aluminum. Let them determine if it can be saved or not.

There is a tapped hole next to the distributor hole in the intake manifold.

On a small block Chevy the distributor goes through a hole in the intake manifold. On a Pontiac the distributor goes behind the intake manifold.

the pcv valve is located at the gack of the intake manifold there should be a gromet at the back or a big hole if theres a big hole you also need the gromet and it connects to the carb and air cleaner. I hope this was helpful It's in-line in the hose on the back of the intake manifold.
