Hi
Some try to sneak this out ,
Most often you have to drain the quart of oil thats in the manifold.
remove the throttle housing plate and look in the manifold you may be able to sop this out.
Another item to consider if this is clean, is the cyclone separator behind the drivers side upper timing cover.
attached to this is also the drain tube back to the oil pan, this has been found to clog causing oil to backup into the manifold
and of course higher mileage cars that may have been in storage
Valve stem seals
if this is a benefit
Please accept and rate as a positive
Thanks
