You need a leak down test in the cylinders to verify. From your description, it sounds like you have issues.

How does it run? Does it smoke white out the tail pipe?

Does not smoke. Just did tune up, changed distributer, cap, wires, plugs, crank pos. Sensore, rough idle about 500 rpm.

What type of pressure gauge do I need, can I get it from parts store, or form snap-on tools

It is cheaper to have it done by a shop

Don't trust the car to leave the yard, thanks for the help, don't have the money for a shop

Can you tow it to a shop? Most likely you have a blown head gasket especially when there is no heat.
