Need advice on my 3rd gen

I started my car up a few mins ago and I notice all this white residue all over. Do I need to change the gaskets on the motor? I really don't use my car only for car shows or for a cruise. So I normally don't open the hood only to connect the battery. I just never turned to look at the engine since it fires right up with no problems power. I took a couple of iPhone pictures hope u can see it since it looks like snow lol.




It's on both sides of the motor so I'm guessing this is why I need to keep adding fluids all the time.

It appears you have an intake gasket leak, so yes to fix it properly you would need to replace the intake gaskets.

Looks like it could also use a good cleaning/degreasing with some Gunk foamy engine cleaner.

Looks like your car has a coke problem.
I know on my car it was notorious for lower intake manifold gasket failure.
But a complete gasket set is under $50 so that and a weekend and it's fixed , with minimal cussing and throwing of tools.lol
