Try to check to see if the electric fan is going on or off at the right intervals to keep the engine cool.
Check that the coolant level is high, and the concentration is 50/50 antifreeze to water.
Also, if the coolant system hasn't been backflushed, this may be an option to try to get the coolant passages clear, if they are clogged.

How hot did it get? Did the engine become damaged again?

I recently changed the head gasket after overheating. The car is not starting and emitting heavy smoke

How hot did the car get before you had to change the head gasket? If the car had extreme heat then it could have damaged the rings. The rings will collapse and allow oil to squeeze past and burn out of the exhaust causing the smoke. Also since the rings are collapsed the vehicle will have no compression hence the no start. First thing is do a compression check.

Car overheating and mixing water with oil

You have blown the head gasket. Also, you may have warped the head if it's aluminum which will happen due to ignoring the issue of overheating...which eventually caused the "blown head gasket". So, it sounds like you have 2 issues to resolve. 1) Why was it tending to overheat? Stuck thermostat, water pump issue or??? 2) Repairing the cylinder head or replacing it if warped badly, if your lucky it's just a blown head gasket. Allowing a overheating vehicle to be in service without solving that the overheating can lead to MANY other expensive problems.

Pajero overheating

It sounds like you had a blown head gasket and it was leaking into the oil or into the exhaust and being burned. if you look at the oil on the dip stick it may look milky. if the head gasket starts leaking internally then it can / will cause overheating

Pajero DI-D dakkar with problem rough run, white smoke at low rpm and low engine temperature

White smoke indicates usually a bad head gasket or worse a cracked head. The gasket is allowing water from the radiator to seep into a combustion chamber and be turned into steam as it exits the exhaust. Check your radiator levels to see if they are dropping and check oil to see if there is a milky substance. If you recently overheated your vehicle, you most likely damaged the head gasket and it will need to be replaced as soon as possible. If this is the problem, the head should be checked for warping by a machinist and re-shaved if it has warped.
Do a compression check to locate the cylinders taking in water.
White exhaust=water in combustion chamber
Blueish exhaust=oil burning
Black exhaust=rich fuel mixture

I have just removed a head of a 1992 mitsubishi 6g72 pajero motor expecting to see a blown gasket ??

You are missing the cause, the next step is to PRESSURE TEST the head, a machine shop does that for you. Long story short, something, somewhere is damaged, keep investigating until you find it.

I have a mitsubishi Pajero 2.5tdi vehicle with 52,000km on the clock,for the past year it has continued to overheat resulting in new and second hand cylinder heads replacement,it has now happened again...

A vast problem, start off by checking the thermostat, replace it, do not try running without it. Next have the radiator and the engine block flushed out professionally. A head gasket as such will not cause overheating unless it has been incorrectly installed. (Was the radiator back flushed after the first occurence of overheating?)
