    Is it a magnum motor? Post anothe pic of engine. The plenum on the magnum motors is known to leak. The best way to check is to take off the throtle body and look into the intake and see if you can see any oil puddling in there. The bottom gasket on those intakes is not a if, but when type thing. And will cause bad gas mileage. This might help ya.
