you have a blown head gasket water is getting in to the engine oil

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

No, a normal tune up cannot cause a blown head gasket. A blown head gasket normally is caused by an engine overheating or by a defect in the gasket or head. If it happened right after a tune-up that is just a coincidence.

If the leak is bad enough i believe it can but i would check your valve cover gasket first.

It is not wise to drive with a blown head gasket. If you continue driving with a blown gasket, eventually your car will over heat and the engine will seize up. This can cause accidents if it occurs while driving.

Head gasket failing The most common cause is a blown head gasket. Stop driving the car as severe engine damage will occur.

It can as one or more cylinders may have a misfire. A blown head gasket will destroy your engine.

probably a blown head gasket if the oil looks milky or has bubbles in it

No, only a blown head gasket or cracked head will cause coolant to mix with the oil. A leaking valve cover gasket will only cause oil to leak onto the engine block externally.

I had a diesel espace and it has wet liners so a blown head gasket would cause this

No. It would cause the coolant and oil to mix and it would look like a Milkshake drain oild and check it.

Yes, that is possible. A blown head gasket will destroy the engine.

It can if the cylinder fills with coolant.

The most common cause of a blown head gasket is an over heating engine. Low coolant or coolant not circulating through the engine causes the engine to heat up and the gasket to fail.

I don't think a blown intake gasket would cause it to overheat, Most causes of overheating are: thermostat stuck in closed position; faulty water pump; broken fan blades; loose belt; clogged radiator; radiator cap not holding pressure; blown head gasket; low or no coolant; leaking hoses.
