Having problems with your 2002 Mitsubishi Galant ?
Car will overheat while at idle - 2002 Mitsubishi Galant
Yes the head gaskets leaking on modern aluminum head engines is all to common. never overheat them, if they start to get hot shut it down and find out why, it can of course be the fans and plugged radiators or faulty thermostats but sounds like in your case the head gasket is leaking and combustion gas is entering the cooling system and this causes an overheat
Try checking the thermostat. if it does not open no coolant is moving through the engine, so wether the fan is working or not the engine will over heat.
