    Connect a vacuum gauge to the intake system and look for pulsing at the low rpms. The pulse could indicate a bad gasket (intake manifold or head gasket)or buned valves.
    If there is no variation on the vacuum gauge reading, I would check the fuel injectors.
    The only sure way to check the intake manifold gaskets is to remove the intake manifold. If you don't know where the gaskets are, you should not pull the intake manifold off. Leave it to someone who knows what he is doing.
