SOURCE: Water mixing with engine oil
5.7's had all kinds of problems with intake manifolds but it could also be a head gasket leaking. One way to check is to pull out your spark plugs and have a look at them. One of them will should be really white looking, that is the cylinder where the coolant is leaking into. A good rule of thumb (but not always true) is that if the coolant is leaking into one of the cylinders at the very front or very back of the engine, it is an intake leak. If the coolant is leaking in one of the middle cylinders, it is a head leak.
But the only way to know absolutly for sure is to pull the intake off and look for a break in the gasket, if you see that you know its the intake manifold. If you cant see any signs of leakage its probally a head problem. Another word of advice, there is an updated gasket from fellpro that lasts longer that the OEM gasket.

Have you checked for a PCV valve plugged? Not sure if there is one an that, but would sure look for one. Crankcase ventilation somewhere.

If you use a Toyota 4K engine, most manufacturers both engine and oil companies recommend a 20W-50 GRADE motor oil. We recommend Castrol. However, Castrol is kinda expensive. Try Petron Philippines products that can be purchased at their gasoline station shops. Castrol ranges from 800-850 (4-liters) while Petron oil products ranges from 490-550 only (4 liters). They both share the same addtives for 20W-50 oil grade.

I disagree with changing the MAF sensor. I had the same problem for about 4 years until today on my 2000 s10 4.3 4wd 125K. It runs like new, and all i did was paid 6 bucks for a can of mass air flow sensor cleaner from auto zone. Try this!! it was awesome the results
