spray aerostart or a flammable spray around the intake gasket while cranking. if it fires up while spraying then you have a leak. sensors im not too sure what is actually in the intake or how to check them. i know the intake air temp is in there but dont think that will stop it running

well that changes a few things, could have blown out intake gasket, or stuffed a sensor in the intake somewhere.

How do you check if it's intake gasket or senor?

If your getting a weak spark then I would say coil pack and maybe ECU. A mate of mine, his EF just stopped one day, irregular spark and weak--- would not start. I found the fault using a multimeter and a gregory's manual. The ecu had failed and was not switching the negative trigger to fire the coil pack. Common problem on EF falcons for the ECU too fail...
