You may have a vacuum leak. Check to see if you need to replace the gasket between the intake manifold and the head. With the engine running, spray short bursts of starter fluid at points around the head/manifold gasket. If the engine starts running much better when you hit one of those spots you probably have a vacuum leak there. Be very careful with starter fluid. It is extremely flamable and if you don't use very short bursts you can cause a fire. If you don't have a vacuum leak, check to see if the injector(s) have anything in them.

I blown head gasket can cause an engine miss which one cause a rough idle.

Generally when the head gets replaced you would also want to replace your plugs as well. It can sometimes be a result from where the water has traveled into the oil from a bad head. I replaced mine with bosch platinum 2 and haven't regretted it for 2 years.

The typical signs for a blown head gasket is white exhaust coming from the tailpipe, gradual coolant loss, rough idle, temp gauge may fluctuate a bit while driving.

Do you mean the EGR (exhaust gas recirculation) system? If so the EGR valve is located on the backside of the cylinder head under the hood cowl. Common EGR symptoms are rough idling,stalling at idle, rough engine performance during light throttle application, and stalling during deceleration. Hope this helps

Its idling rough because you probably have a blown head-gasket and lost compression at two cylinders you need to remove all spark plugs and check each cylinders compression.

hard to say but if it runs rough & this is related you may have a leaking intake manifold or head gasket causing vacuum loss (reason for rough idle) & leaking out the antifreeze - both are expensive to repair

Slytherin only has a head of house, not a headmaster. The head of house is Severus Snape until he leaves in 1997 and is replaced by Horace Slughorn, who was previously the head of house before the books were set.

If your referring to the engine block, the motor has to be replaced. If your refering to a cracked head, the head has to be replaced. Contact a service technician you can trust. a cracked block cannot be repaired. The only option is to replace the engine.

If you have gas in your oil, then the probablity is very high that your head gasket is blown. I bet your car is running very rough, difficult to maintain idle, and acceleration is poor.

locate the idle on your 99 cherokee,then take a flat head screwdriver and turn the idle towards the right to turn the idle down. right now the idle is too high. if you dont know waht the idle looks like it looks like a flat head srew with out the head. located in the front of the engine.

Intake and exhaust manifold gaskets are also replaced along with the head gasket. Head is inspected and if cracked it is replaced. Head bolts should also be replaced with new ones.

is it losing collant? check for oil in coolant or coolant in oil. if so it may have a bad intake or head gasket. if it only idles rough when it gets really hot and the coolant level is okay you probably need a thermostat or possibly a new radiator.

many cars todayhave aluminum heads and cast iron blocks these different metals heat and cool at different rates if you have overheated you may have warped the head or cracked the block

Hmm... it could be several factors. Is the Check engine light on? If so, see if it points to your fast idle control valve or air intake valve. Either one may be the cause of the high idle, especially if the idle is rough. The leak in the valve cover gasket could be as simple as replacing the cover gasket, unfortunately, it is difficult to assess the machine over the internet.

that is actually a matter of opinion. but, in my point of view, the head is soft, and the body is rough.
