these cars are notorious for that.It needs to be "burped" when your car is cold then open the resivoir(coolant).Start the car .As it warms you will notice the tank level will rise.Do not let it boil over!! when it starts to get warm then turn the car off and watch for bubbles in the resivior.add more coolant as the bubbles come out .repeat until no more bubbles come up.The problem with these cars is that an air pocket forms in the water pump.

I am having the same problem. I have read that only a GM thermostat may work aftermarket thermostats dont work in some cases. If the top radiator hose is hot and the bottom is is dramatically cooler, then more than likely, the thermostate is not opening. The other part I dont know yet is how to purge the system of air. Trying to find that out now. Good luck.
