Hello, Brand new here so please don't kill the new guy...

If i understand you correctly...

*It'* not a HUGE deal if the engine is wet on the outside so long as you aren't noticing any loss in performance...

*If you don't see any residue on the dip stick, oil fill cap, or when you change the oil, you probibly aren't leaking into the crank case...

*if you can't see some sort of whiteish smoke or smell the collent burning then your probibly not leaking into the cylinders...

I'm just getting all this srtaight because from the research i've done arround here this seems to be the most common problem with that engine... i've learned that its better to know what to look for before things happen rather then learn what you should have looked for. Thanks for you help!

Darrel, you don't have to worry about it. You don't have a plastic upper intake.
