MY Q IS POST REBUILD AFTER OVERHEATING WHY DOES IT NOT IDLE BUT OTHERWISE SOUNDS GOOD

2001 Chrysler PT Cruiser • 92,000 miles

My neighbor put a new radiator in my wifes pt cruiser. His background sounded like my cousin vinnies girl. I guess he didn't realize the thermostat will not let enough water in. The car blew!My partner at work is an aircraft and auto mechanic. We took the head off had a valve job done. It runs but smokes like cheech and chong which he said would burn off. But won't idle. Could it be the fuel injector sensor is boogered up?

Did you install new head bolts or use the old ones?

We did a test and blew air into the oil hole after covering up bolt holes and returns and got air through water holes. Can I put a non egr 2001 2.4 into where an egr motor was? Someone said the computer may not know. If not I can switch heads
