You can try a tune up first or you can have your compression check you can have a crack will keep an air bubbles in the water an mess with the temperature sensor. but you must be adding water to the radiator. do you have any water in your oil? if not a major tune up will fix you up.

Vdj76r turbo diesel v8 wagon. Why does it have an occasional engine rattle when cold?

A brief engine rattle occurs when starting the car because the oil has not reached all of the engine, do not apply accelerator when starting in the morning. On diesel engines, if the oil is not changed regularly, the oil gets thick and loses it's viscosity.

Hard to start cold - then runs rough til warm,then ok.

It could be that you have a bad ETC sensor, but these cars can and do have problems getting air out of them, keep burping the system, if there's a lot of air in it, you'll see bubbles coming up as the car is running. and yes, you could very well have a leak and not be able to see it and it won't leak on the ground just when your driving and the engine is hot....I just went through this same thing with my sons 1989 Supra.

My Mitsubishi l200' pick up starts normally when the engine is cold ,after running for almost an hour I could hardly start it

Look at these ....weak starter motor ( it takes more power to start a hot engine than a cold one.), Bad battery cables, fuel filter, low oil pressure, water level in the radiator.

I have a mitsubishi space wagon (not galant but the space wagon didnt come up as an option)1997cc, 1993 automatic petrol. It has had a new radiator, new thermostat and new head gasket fitted but is still...

It sounds like the water pump belt under the timing belt is broken or the pump is not circulating the anti freeze the way it is supposed to.Did you replace the water pump, water pump belt, and timing belt when you replaced the head gasket? If a vehicle is over 100,000 miles it is recommended to replace the water pump while doing the timing belt just because the pump is such a pain to get to under the timing belt.

Mitsubishi space star (x reg) stalling on idling and on stopping

This problem apears when the battery has been diconected for some time. Start the car, and leave in in idle without driving it for about 10 min. The car runs fine after that.
