Where is the intake manifold on a car?

With all of the components on a car that are intended to manage this flow, it can be a bit overwhelming to keep up with them all. The intake manifold is mounted on the top of the engine and is intended to direct the air in the engine to the right cylinder during the combustion process.

What happens when coolant comes out of an intake manifold?
