When I turn on the car The engine does not sound smooth, it idles pretty bad then the engine shuts off by itself but the power, air works fine. (Air turns on automatically when I turn on the car idk why) I tried turning it back on and it turned on but then engine shut off again I left it over night, came back and it drove fine. A few days later same thing happened I don’t know what’s wrong.
this happened after tire rotation and alignment
I used head gasket sealant to try to fix a head gasket. Upon taking it to the shop I was told I had used too much and had clogged the engine. They suggested I replace the engine rather than just the head gasket. I could only afford head gasket and water pump, so those were replaced and the cooling system flushed. The car was returned to me and the first day it overheated going up the mountainous road to my home. I replaced the radiator and the shop said I blew the brand new gasket that had less than 75 miles. Can a brand new head gasket blow that easily, and is the shop responsible for replacing it if it did blow a second time?

Everytime I start my 2003 Lincoln Towncar, my windshield wipers come on and do 2 wipes and then stop. I was thinking maybe i was hitting something while getting in or out, but ive been very mindful of this and made sure i wasn't, but it happens every single time I start it. Any clues as to why it would be doing this?
