Usually a sign of a blocked exhaust, or a very lean fuel mixture.
If you have removed the exhaust pipes, are the catalytic converters still hooked up ?

The dummy manfold gasket keeps blowing out

check the matting surfaces for being flat as if they are warped it will not seal properly and blow out.

Hi, my golf mk1 1.6 1995 model makes a tapping sound when i drive it but it stops when i idle

Sounds like to me a small exhust leak either
a exhust manafold gasket or exhust flange
gasket or cracked exhust manifold.
Anything else would be enteral meaning
valves need to be set, bad lifter, bad rod bearing,
bad oil pump, or timing chain tensioner,
BUT I would be willing to put my money
on an exhust leak or timing chain tensioner

My 1985 mazda rx 7 1.1 gets glowing hot where exhust comes out of the motor , replaced exhust pipe and muffler but didn't help have any suggestions

Check the ignition timing.
Make sure the fuel you are using is specified for engine use.
Last one will be to check the catalytic converter if it still open.

Hope that helps!

So I drive a 1999 chevy Cavalier and ive been having many problems with it. It blows black smoke sometimes from the exhust, on the hot and cold gauage the needle works its way to the hot end all the time,...

It sounds like you have alot of problems which may only be a couple.
Have the coolant thermistor checked, it sounds like this is not switching off and causing the engine to over fuel, making it run rough and blow black smoke out the exhaust.
Have the engine thermostat checked it maybe faulty causing the engine to over heat., have these done and see how you cars goes then.

How do i unhuck the lines from the fuel filter

If it is the same as the 1999, it requires a special tool that you can purchase at your local autoparts store. The same tool is used for A/C line connections as well. Clean out all the dirt and debri that can get trapped in the connection area of the line and insert the tool.
