The only fix for a bad intake gasket is to remove the intake manifold and replace the gasket.

You will need to replace the intake gaskets to fix your problem. The HEAD GASKETS will not be your problem.

If you have a leaky intake manifold gasket, one or more cylinders may run extra lean. A lean burn condition can result in excess combustion heat and eventually burn valves or burn through a piston. Most mechanics will strongly recommend that you repair a leaking intake manifold gasket.

You drain coolant, mark and remove all hoses. Remove 8 bolts or so for intake. Pry intake back one inch or so, so just over studs. Scrape the old intake gasket off. Slip new intake gasket on. Tighten and torque the bolts. Add coolant, that was drained off. Verify the fix by checking engine vacuum at idle...15PSI, and steady.

no you need to replace the lower intake gaskets . P.S. should have the rear head checked for leaks also they are known to leak also

No it will not. The only thing that will fix a blown head gasket is to replace the gasket.

The only fix is to remove the head and replace the gasket.
