Default newbie Question - Overheating?

Hey guys,

When i drive my car round for a while and give it a thrash it gets pretty hot (which is normal), But I find that once it stalls/I crash/I stop it and then i try to get it going again it doesnt want to start.. where it might take me like a good 5-10 pulls to get it going again. Is this normal? I find it only does this when its hot. once its cool it starts pretty much first time..

any help?

just put a few drop of water on the glow plug area and see if the water sizzles straight off .. you should see the water slowly boiling off

try richening your High end to a point where you have consistent idle even after some time.... and try to turn off you engine after 4 mins or so and see if it is easy to start.. if it's difficult, you're overheating and your mixture is too lean.
