Hi There,
Chances are the cooling systems requires "bleeding". Meaning there is a pocket of air in the hoses where your sensor is.
Dependent upon the car maker, there are specific instructions on rectifying this problem.
If your car is an vintage car (about 30 years or more), then the thermostat could be playing up (stuck), and needs replacing.
Good luck!

I'd need to see the pressure when it's kicking off. If the pressure is on the edge, it can cause it to drop on cooler days where the low pressure switch shuts it down. How do you know what charge is in it? Did you evacuate and fill with a scale? You CANNOT judge charge based on pressure alone. Impossible

When a car overheats it can do serious damage to the engine internals, including completely seizing the engine. It is common for overheating to blow a head gasket which would explain the bad starting. Unless you know how to diagnose these issues, you will need to take it to a repairer for an assessment. Be prepared for some very bad news.

Either the fuel tank sender in the tank is bad and needs replacement, or the fuel gauge is faulty. I would bet the one in the tank is probably bad, because that's usually the case. Find the connection at the fuel tank, disconnect it and use a VOM to get a resistance reading while the tank is empty and reading 1/2. It should match the specs.

This is an emission code for a small leak in the evap system. There are many causes but the most common is a loose gas cap. There could also be loose disconnected hoses under the hood near the air filter or a problem with the evap canister itself
