Hmmm, have you also noticed a power loss that has conincided with this problem? Typically, when the intake gaskets on these motors fail, water sometimes finds its way to one of the intake PORTS and causes hydro-lock in the affect cylinder. Which can bend the connecting rod. I have seen this many times. It has all sorts of indications, just depends on what happened exactly. Do a compression test. If you find a weak cylinder (and you'll notice it right away), chances are its' been hydro-locked. Bad news. Good luck.
