Hi there. There are several reasons why you might be experiencing overheating issues with your car. However, without knowing the vehicle details, it's hard to give you a good diagnosis. It could be the water pump, bad thermostat, an air bubble in the coolant lines, or a blown head gasket in the worst case.
The best thing I can recommend for you is to contact a local ASE certified mechanic to inspect the vehicle's starting issue and determine what needs to be fixed.
