Question about Dodge Neon
I changed the head gasket and when we got everything back together the car has a rough start and makes a clicking noise when accelerating and is not loud when idling. I noticed that the EGR valve gasket was not good.
It's hard to diagnose with just the small information you have stated, but it 'sounds' like it's that Exhaust Gas Recirculation Valve gasket.
In your cylinder head is a runner that brings exhaust gas up through the intake manifold.
The EGR valve is attached to the intake manifold, and the sensory part of the EGR valve sits down in the pathway of the runner.
A bad EGR valve gasket will let exhaust gasses escape, making the sound you described.
