post a real question.?
is this just light bulb question, or 4wd is INOP or just what.
are you using 4wd, or driving in dirt. is car on dirt or pavement.

My car has an overheating problem.... ive put in a new thermostat and flushed the system and added new coolant but still over heats even with the heater on full blast

Could be the waterpump has a leak. Could be a clogged/blocked radiator. Could be the LIM (Lower Intake Manifold) gasket - a problem that is chronic with GM cars esp 3.1 and 3.4L engines. Could be an air bubble in the system if you didn't bleed it. Could be that you bought a bad thermostat - just because it's new, doesn't mean you got a good one.
Your symptoms could be any of the above. When I had your problem it was the LIM. Check for water in your oil.

I have a water leak on my 96 camaro. It has a 3.8 v6 engine. The water is leaking, not from the water pump itself but from behind the part the water pump mounts on. Not immediately behind the water pump...

It is your Lower Imtake Manifold gasket (LIM). Late Production Camaros and Firebirds used Dex-Cool coolant which nortoriously caused the LMI to actually disintegrate. The failure of the LIM allows coolant to leak to the exterior of the engine as well as into the interior of the engine eventually getting into your oil. Check your oil for a brown milky color... if you have it immediately drive your car to you favorite repair shop and replace the LIM gasket. The GM 3.1L, 3.4L and 3.8L engines are famous for disintegrated LIM gaskets and a good shop will have replaced 30-50 of these in a year. The LMI is part of the reason the public dissed Pontiac and eventually led to its demise (not to mention bad management at GM). Find a shop familiar with the LIM problem and it shouldn't cost more than $500 to replace (or less). If you have any mechanical skill you can replace it yourself... the gasket kit costs about $35 at NAPA AutoParts and it takes a whole Saturday if it's your first time. I just finished replacing the LMI on my wife's '94 Firebird.
