Fairly common problem so i would say it is definitely your head gasket. Sorry.

Yes it could, as this creates a vacuum leak.

Remove the throttle body housing on the top of the intake, it is a 90 degree tunnel like small piece held by 4 small bolts, turn it over and look for two holes, these holes are for the EGR valve flow, they are probably plugged up with carboned crud, clean them out with the tip of a screwdriver if neccessary to remove all the crud, once its clean reinstall it and reset your check engine light, hope this helps, let me know

The egr valve regulator hose keeps blowing out. i took out the catalytic converter, replaced the plugs & wires, egr valve and still the same results

You removed the Cat? Maybe just plug the EGR regulator hose connection since you have no catalyst anymore.

Have a 1995 ford contour and took it to pepboys and they got multiple codes. One of the codes came up twice code 332 says egr valve not opening could this cause all the other codes? My husband has checked...

DTC P0332 is for a knock sensor, not egr valve. That's not to say one of the multiple codes you've mentioned wasn't for the egr valve.

What are some of the characteristics the vehicle is showing. By the way, what is the vehicle? In one place it says 1995 contour, in another it says 1995 explorer.

1996 VW Passat VR6 is overheating, upper hose is hot, lower hose is cool, fluid is not leaking out. What do you recommend?

Thermostat is most likely. Try that first, then my next choice would be water pump. Good luck.

Intermittently won't hold idle and stalls

The symptom you describe can be caused by either a bad or dirty EGR vavle or a broken / defective vacuum line.

Try this
1. disconnect and plug off the EGR vacuum supply line

2. Connect a vacuum hose of equal size to the EGR valve.

3. Start vehicle

4. draw a vacuum on the line orally.

a. the engine should die or run really bad.

5. Restart vehicle and repeat checking for same result.

6. If EGR valve is performing correctly as stated in steps 4 and 5 thern you most likely have a bad / cracked / damaged vacuum line somewhere.

7. Reconnect original vacuum line to the EGR Valve

8. Locate source of Vacuum leak.
