oil in inlet on xe
what causes it and what affects will it have,
i thought it was head gasket but none in water or anywere else??
do you mean there is a little oil in the inlet manifold?
If so it will have come through the breather hoses - nothing to worry about if its just a little.
little pool at bottom of inlet manifold , dontr think its ment to be there! dunno how its getting there
through the breather pipes with crancase fumes, which go from the crankcase, to the head, then they are routed into the inlet manifold for emissions purposes.

same here in both my c20let and c20xe, don't worry about it, as said it comes from the rocker cover breather hoses (so long as its only a little puddle) Check and clean out your breather hoses with carb cleaner.
...because if it isn't from the breather, then it's from the inside (ie, stem seals)
