Is it a blown intake manifold gasket or exhaust manifold gasket?

If your intake gasket is blown your plastic intake maybe cracked also. But yes either of those issues will give u a hiccup or misfire. Your O2 sensors might be reading wrong and your getting the wrong fuel to air mixture and the intake might be adding to much air to cylinders

Then idk cuz if the intake manifold gasket was blown then antifreeze or water would be leaking into the spark plugs causing it to bog down & misfire (happened to me).

I have an antifreeze leak but it's at the thermostat housing not causing any harm at the moment

But the coolant can run down into the spark plug well and short it out. Very common

Maybe, you might wanna fix that leak first just to make sure. The thermostat housing is like $18 at AutoZone.

It'll dry up from the same heat of the block & spark plug in a days worth of driving as long as it doesn't keep on leaking in there.

It should be fine the gasket should last you around 10 or so years if done right.

Oh and I'm pretty sure I have a 99-00 engine in my car it was a rebuilt title and has marking on the heads and the thermostat housing I think matches up with a 99 not an 02

Just dropped my car off to get the intake fixed so I'm pretty sure my throw out barring is out or going out can that hurt anything or just makes the noise?
