First, it's important to note which year Sedona. Then it's important to get the terminology correct. Sedona has no "IAC". Do you refer to the IAT?

Search autozone.com or advanceautoparts. They have intake manifold gasket sets. In any event, RTV silicone gasket sealer is pretty good stuff and will work if done properly.

Why don't you trust it? It either seals or it don't. GM uses it for a lot of gaskets. I've been using it for years, it's great stuff. It's not going to break down and fail, unlike paper gaskets. Call the dealer if you want the part number.

Autozone, Pepboys, and all that big auto parts stores don't work that gasket either small auto parts stores. I already called the dealer and they told me that I have to leave my sedona there so they can fix it and they can't bring me any more information. That's why I'm here looking for some answers...!!!

Rubber Gasket

The IACV gasket is fragile, but what is more frustrating is that it actually expands under vacuum/pressure and temperature. it is possible that the old gasket has expanded so much that it is impossible to get it back into position once you have removed the IACV. so a good safety precaution IMO would be to have a new gasket standing by just in case.
