Arrow '03, rough idle, smell coolant

Our '03 started sputtering, check engine light came on, so we changed the plugs, wires, and the upper intake gaskets and the check engine went away, however, it's idling rough and you can smell coolant. We don't know how to get to the lower intake gaskets..any help there? We're hoping this is the issue. Any thoughts or ideas?
