If so that is called the plenum gasket, or intake plenum gasket. There are available aftermarket, places like NAPA should have or be able to get them. It is a common gasket to replace because of the necessity to remove the plenum to do a tune-up. NAPA gets about $7 for the gasket.
ok there is a few things might be happening...first did you make sure when you put the intake gaskets in there was No ports plugged or covered...second is...are both heater hoses Cold or is one hot and other cold...if so you have a air lock in the heater core...if this is the problem you need to lossen off the cold one till antifrezze comes out.
I'm not an expert, but I took my 2000 Lincoln Nav to the shop and they told me the issue is that my accuator is not opening properly to allow the heat to go through; therefore, it's overheating. That's why I can feel some heat on the front in the back. All vents, including the rear vent blows strong, but they blow very cold.
Unfortunately, I'm also having an issue with my engine intake manifold or intake gasket being cracked causing anti-freeze to leak out of my tailpipe and smell badly through the vents - even on defrost - so until that's fixed, I'll never have heat.
You could have what is called a lean misfire which is caused by an intake manifold leak. Only you know if you are skilled enough to change the gasket yourself. Call the dealership and ask them what the book labor time is for the job, that time is for a skilled Tech. with all the proper tools. That will give you an indication of what you are up against.
i know the shop told you its the head gasket, but it sounds like the water pump is out not the gasket.. because the pump is barely pulling water, thats why the car is hot but no hot air..if rad. is full of coolant, even if it is the head gasket you should still have hot air.... this is a lot cheaper than a head gasket..$100 verse $2000.. i know what sounds bettter to me..lol.. trust me...keith..
