    The intake manifold gasket wont effect the cooling system per say unless it is allowing a vacuum leak causing a lean condition or allowing a cooling leak .I will send you article I wrote but we have not yet published on the website.
    I will send it to your email address you posted this question from..

    Most likely your radiator is clogged. You should have it checked and rodded out.
