Advice needed please

Hi all my 1996 turbo wagon has been playing up, its been spluttering and missing somedays and then other days are ok, it had been getting hot when i got it because the previous owners let it run low on water but i topped it back up again so could it be a possible head gasket? maf sensor? theres no white/ grey oil and no white smoke but i took it about a mile down the road tonight and it started spluttering so popped the bonnet and the hoses had a lot of pressure in them and it smelt and felt hot for such a short run, and it idles up and down a bit at standstill sometimes but still seems to have plenty of power,
Ive not had much look with this car the clutch went a couple of weeks ago and now this, if it is head gaskets i will probably sell it for spares or repairs, what would it be worth?
150k, mot till april 12, tax till may 12, good condition only an odd bump and scratch, clean interior, and a new exedy clutch to go in it

Any help would be appreciated, many thanks

Re: Advice needed please

if its getting hot then my guess ould be an airlock in the system if no other signs.

as far as spluttering could be a number of reasons, MAF, plugs, leads etc, have to go through it to check
