that there sounds like flow problems through the radiator...perhaps get a new radiator now~...as far as running poorly, but starting good am going to point to the IAT or intake air temperature sensor as this will tell the computer that it's cold out or hot out at the intake...combined with Data from the block temperature sensor will tell the injectors how to enrichen the mix~

your overflow reservoir doin' funny things?

find hot spots on the radiator with a thermo-spot gun...they're less than twenty dollars~
