Wrong gasket (and you trusted a dealer to fix something).

there is a gasket on the bottem of the intake its called the intake pan gasket it cracks and then washes out #7 cly if you let it go to long then you will need a motor or rebuild that one. the coolant could be the possible heads that all crack by the exhast valve (glen dale machinest told me this)

If it is leaking coolant, I would say they replaced the gasket on the wrong side of the head... I would guess your head gasket is toast and they replaced your intake gaskets.

Was it Brighton Chrysler? If so, smack that smartass service writer. His piss poor attitude and lack of customer service cost them a customer with 4 Jeeps and a Dodge Ram tow rig. Too bad cause I like knowing the guy working on my stuff. Jeff over there (a Jeep guy on the board) is good people. I just won't deal with that dealer ever again. I just take my stuff up to Ken at All-Pro in Lansing now. WAY better customer service and he fixes it right.

Plenum pan gasket or something like that is what it is called. It happened to mine and that's what my problem was.

Plenum gasket won't be leaking coolant though. Cracked head or blown head gasket.

I forget what the service writer's name was. Jeff is one of the actual techs. I would trust him fixing anything. Just the service writer there is a worthless piece of shit with a serious attitude problem. I had nothing but trouble with him. At one point he hung up on me so I called the dealership manager and read him the riot act.

I guess that is why I like dealing with Ken now. He treats my shit better than I do and does it right for the right price.

It's a common problem on 318's and 360's. The intake has an access cover in the bottom. You must remove the intake to replace it. I would do a compresson test first on all cylinders, if they all pass, then demand that the intake be resealed.
Also inspect the plugs for burnt oil deposits. If you have a bad cylinder, put 2 tablespoon of oil and retest to eliminate any ring issues. If the compression test still fails, you have a cylinder head issue also.

If compression is good, replace the complete intake mainifold set, clean your throttle body and run some seafoam through the intake while the truck is running to help clear out all the carbon and oil deposits.

R&R the intake isn't bad, just time consuming for the first timer. You will not need to remove the distributor either.
