The intake manifold cracked leaving a leak of coolant. The crack isn't too big and was wondering if jb weld could work because I do not have the resources to replace it, or the money.
Do you
have the same problem?

No, forget that. The heat and pressure in the system doesn't allow it to hold.

A new manifold is the only answer.

Just to add to this one the sell a metal flange to replace the broken plastic nipple on the manifold. You remove the manifold cut the nipple out. Then reinstall the manifold then install the metal flange with nipple.I actually did one these with the fix came out really nice. It will never crack and leak again.
