My girlfriend recently blew the freeze plug located on the back of intake manifold and I believe it was ran very hot. I replaced it and car started but ran rough, so I killed the engine and tried starting...

when a motor has been cooked ( run with out water ) the rings loose tension , the pistons score the cylinder walls, the head cracks or warps and the head gasket generally blows. In mechanical circles , your best option is a replacement motor either from an engineering rebuilding shop or a good unit from the wreckers.

Mustang ran hot now starts but engine sounds rough, still running hot

this could be a number of problems , firstly with engine running remove radiator cap see if large bubbles of air appear, blown head gasket. second depending how long engine is running before temp rises to overheating, thermostat. third, O2 sensor could be damaged this will cause rough running and slight increase in engine temp.(unlikely if idles well) fourthly damaged valves (inlet/exhaust)

The fan in front of my radiator broke apart recently on my 2001 Blazer. I had to replace the radiator, fan, timing belt and water pump. Then it ran hot; between 200 and 250, it always smells hot and it...

Heat will not hurt the plugs, but it may have hurt something else. Look around for melting ignition wires or anything else too close to the exhaust. Rough idle will usually set the engine light--is it on? If not, check to see if maybe the egr valve is stuck open.

My 1996 dakota ran hot blew the top off the radiator. i replaced it now when it starts it will not idle and runs rough

you may want to have a block check done on the cooling system to see if the head gaskets are any good as this can cause the top of the rad to blow off and the rough running and poor idle.

1995 Chevy Astro rough idle after choke goes off and engine is at full operating temperature, also no check engine light.

Inspect/replace air filter.
Fill the gas tank to above 3/4 and add Lucas FUELSYSTEM CLEANER.
Ran on the highway for 10+ miles.

Monitor is the rough idle condition is getting worst on below 1/4 tank.
Change fuel filter and check fuel pressure.
Most failing/weak fuel pump will not work well below 1/4 tank mark.
It will fail in a HOT DAY.
