Question about 1999 Oldsmobile Cutlass
Re-torque the cylinder head bolts. If the problem persists, check the radiator for clogged, or perform the coolant system test and replace the cylinder head gasket.

If you're saying that the problem is air bubbles coming into the overflow tank, then there probably isn't a problem. If you just completed the service and started running the vehicle, then it might do this for a while until all of the air is worked out of the system. Continue to run the vehicle until it reaches operating temperature. Shut the engine off and let it sit for a while. After it cools off, then check to make sure it is completely full of coolant. Start the engine and drive the vehicle with the heater on and the fan on high until heat starts to come out. Shut the engine off again and let it sit. Make sure the coolant is full before driving it again. Due to changes in cooling system design, air can be difficult to remove completely without some effort. I hope this helps solve your problem.
