'80 300d. 1/2 inch of greasy goo in air intake manifold

Obviously not good, but is it common?

Does your 300D have a turbo?

(Sounds cryptic eh? There is a reason!)

Don't leave that there - I'll take it to bits!

An engine head rebuilder can hot dunk your intake manifold and cross over tube (if you have turbo). Shouldn't be too much money and they'll come back looking new.

Disconnect your EGR and use a blocking plate to prevent further soiling.

If you have a turbo, and it is leaking oil from its seals, can also cause the problem. If you ignore this, and it springs a full leak the engine can run away which could be the end of it, so repair the turbo if you spot that.
