My 2002 mitsubishi lancer overheated and the radiator had to be replaced and we put a new thermostat in. It starts and runs fine sometimes, but sometimes it is very difficult to start and keep running. This has been over a 2 day period. There is no water in the oil. And no oil leaking around the gaskets.

When I tried to start it this a.M. I could hear sounds like water circulating and a light clicking sound which I don't remember hearing before.

Any advise you can give will be appreciated. Thanks, Wanda

The cooling system wouldn't have anything to do with the engine starting. However, when you had the service done, did you/they forget to reattach or plug something in? Go over everthing and double check.

Is there a check engine light on? If so, have the computer scanned. If not, check fuel pump pressure, fuel filter for blockage, fuel regulator for leaks, injectors for firing/spray pattern/flow.
