fuel injection question

There is a sensor on my 92 1.6 16vavle motor that is allowing coolant into the air intake. the guy at the parts house says this is normal and does not know what this part is called. can anyone here help me out? Is this normal? i should note that my coolant needs filled,about once a week. any help would be greatly appreciated.

Oh, yeah, pretty much all internal combustion engines spray coolant into the intake... NOT!

Hmm, how do you know it's going into the intake? I just can't think of anything that brings coolant anywhere NEAR the intake.

Oh, wait a minute, the coolant overflow bottle is right next to the intake... Do you have coolant in the air filter box???

No there is no cooloant in the air filter box, but a hose rune to the air inatake from a part that sits on the fuel injection and when i removed the air intake to adjust the vavles i found coolant in the hose.

Water heated intake manifold with a coolant temp switch to regulate flow to the manifold? (on/cold off/hot)

If it is the hose that i'm thinking of, it doesn't run into the air intake tube. It may look like it does, but it actually just runs in a separate tube connected to the air tube. If you take the air tube completely off of it you will notice that it doesn't go inside of the air tube. You will also notice that if you blow through it, it will return in your face. I think that your problem could rest in the gasket for the idle air control valve that the hoses before-mentioned run into. I had problems with mine leaking outside the plenum, but suppose that it could leak into the plenum just as well. Try replacing the idle air control valve gasket, or just make one first, as it is very cheap and easy to do. Keep us informed.
