Yes, an intake gasket can leak into the cylinders if this is happening get it fixed or you could end up with a lot getting in and hydro locking which can in turn bend valves

Well if the intake gasket breach is at the intake runner then antifreeze can in via the intake valve, then it leaks down the cylinder wall into the oil. Usually it will also burn some off so you could get some white smoke out the exhaust.

Just did a head swap. The metal neck in front is separate from the air intake minus it's attachment to connect the two heads. The rear plastic return is the problem. Torque is 10 inch lbs. not following the torque sequence and torque can cause it to break under stress from expansion and contraction of the heads. Hence antifreeze leakage. Problem is adapters are built onto the intake.

White smoke meaning, unburnt oil mixed with antifreeze getting past the valves and dumping on the manifold causing the smoke cloud.

Sorry my bad! How long ago did you replace the heads? Is there antifreeze present in the oil?

What you mean by water coming out the exhaust??? Is it antifreeze? If so, that engine wouldn't start. Sure u ain't confusing condensation caused by functional Cats? Antifreeze in the oil will be noticeable only in the oil pan, and misfiring of the engine. Get my drift? Reform ulster your question, please.
