HARD TO START ONCE STARTED FINE

1997 SAAB 9000

Engine Mechanical problem
1997 Saab 9000 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 85000 miles

Once my car is started it runs fine but it is a really hard to start. The engine will turn over a few times for about 15 seconds. I do not have a thermostat in the car right now, is this the reason? My check engine - radiator light is on as well.

there is another problem that sometimes my gauges will all over a sudden stop working my mph will go to 0 and then my gas gauge will go to 0 as well then it will snap back into where it is supposed to be at. And sometimes when I turn my light switch to on it will kill the engine! What is up with that?
