Replaced spark plug wires, spark plugs, coil, radiator hose, and engine coolant. It seems to run okay, but there is a funny sound when I let off the gas to shift gears almost a vibration sound. The blue temperature light comes on every morning and stays on way past when it is warmed up. Is that an intake or exhaust leak possibly? If it is a blown head gasket can I baby the car and drive it for awhile before I get it fixed without really ruining it?

If you have a blown gasket, the coolant level would not stay constant. As long as the engine is running normally, you can drive it around without any problem but not recommended for long distance driving if you are not confident about it.

As to the noise, without knowing where and what is causing it, it is impossible to make any comments on it.
