Question about 1998 Mitsubishi Galant
Well you can't bypass the sensor. If the sensor was faulty the check engine light would be on.
If you have replaced the plugs you may have to get a mechanic to check out the computer and other sensors.

Since you vehicle is 7 years old. The temperature is due for a change.
the temp sensor give the exact engine block temperature information to the computer (ECU).
An old sensor or sensor giving incorrect temp to the ECU will cause this problem.
The correct term is call close loop. When the engine at start up the computer will only count on the temp sensor to report temp.
When temp is reaching 195F,the mode change to open loop. All sensors comes into play and at the point the fuel inject will scale down for the warm up state.
Running rich condition can be cause by an old temp. sensor.
Change the sensor and the RICH condition after warm up will go away.
