Default Intake gaskets on a 99 malibu 3100

So I have a friend with a 3100. The coolant disappears with no apparently leaks. Being a 99 it only has 67k on still. Would you recommend doing the intake gaskets? I am almost 100% positive it has never been done.

Have you tried a pressure test on the cooling system? If that holds then you will know the gaskets are good. Could be a bad radiator cap.
