I needed to get another intake gasket because the one that was on the car started leaking. No holes, lines, cracks or anything on the intake. Even used sealant to seal gasket on but didn't work. Please help my job depends on it.

Intake manifold could be warped or not torqued to specs

IF YOU USED SILICONE (RUBBER) GASKET, ON THE GASKET IT MAY HAVE MADE THE GASKET SLIDE IN OR OUT FROM UNDER THE INTAKE.

IF YOU DID DON'T FEEL DUMB, I DID THE SAME THING WITH A VALVE COVER GASKET YEARS AGO, ON MY JEEP, BEFORE I FIGURED OUT THAT IS WAS "S. UCKING INWARD" AS I TIGHTENED THE BOLTS

KEEP US INFORMED ON PROGRESS
