    Hey guys. I'm a student at UGA, Junior year (Go DAWGS). My dad signed up for this forum hoping that we could get some expert advice.

    I need some help with my 2004 Tahoe Z71 (4WD with 5.3L gas engine). Money is tight and I'm starting to have some issues with my engine (132,000 miles). A mechanic looked at it and told me that the intake manifold gasket needs replacing. It's idling rough when it's cold, but gets better as it warms up. We've replaced the plugs, wires and distributer cap already.

    So I'm researching the Fel-Pro intake manifold gaskets. I see a teal colored one and one that's black (PermaDryPlus). My first question is: What's the better gasket to use? My dad's question is: Do these gaskets require an RTV sealant or not?

    Thanks in advance for any feedback. We plan on doing the work ourselves on a weekend. My dad's pretty mechanical, so I hope we don't screw up my truck! I have confidence that we can do it.

    Welcome to GM Truck Club!

    If you don't get a response in the next day or so on this then I recommend posting your inquiry in the 'Technical Forums' section as appropriate to the type of issue you have ... or in the 'GM Platforms' section specific to your vehicle. You'll reach a wider group of the forum members that way ... and target your inquiry more directly to those who might already have experience with it.
