Hi, my '98 Taurus SE 3.0L V6 just rec.ently overheated. I saw the gauge go up and felt it start to run rough. I had to push it a little farther than I would've liked, I had my 3 year old son in the car, and I needed a safe place to pull over. Had it towed home and replaced the water pump. Now, it is very difficult to start. You have to crank it for a long time while holding down the gas pedal. It will chug a few times, backfire, and then slowly grumble to life. While it is running, it sounds like it is missing and sounds rough. I think I may have blown a head gasket, still, even so, I don't think it would be that hard to start. Any Ideas guys? Thanks, Tom
