SOURCE: car runs hot
CHECK YOUR RELAY IN YOUR FUSE BOX UNDER THE HOOD ON THE DRIVERS SIDE INNER FENDER. THE A/C AND THE HEATER RELAY ARE SAME. CHECK AND SEE IF THE A/C REALY WORKS BY TURNING ON YOUR A/C SWITCH. THE ELECTRIC FAN SHOULD START RIGHT AWAY. OTHERWISE YOU HAVE TO WAIT TILL THE ENGINE ACHEIVES OPERATING TEMP TO KICK THE FAN ON. IF ONE DON'T WORK AND OTHER OTHER DOES... SWITCH THE RELAY AND SEE IF IT WORKS. BEEN THERE AND DONE THAT. $9.00 FOR A NEW RELAY AT CHECKER AUTO PARTS.

First place I'd look is at the thermostat. However, if the hose did not rupture in a normal manner and blew apart, I'd also suspect that you may have a blown head gasket. In that case, compression is entering the cooling system which is not designed to handle such high pressures, therefore causing the hose to explode). This will also result in rough running you observed.

Make sure you put in the correct temp thermostat. GM usually has 2. A low temp and a high temp. Most shops will give ya the high temp just because thats usually what the book calls for. you might want to try a low temp. Also, sometimes, when a car runs hot and everything has been repaired....well, almost everything......it might be the head gaskets. And those my friend are no easy task. But..somewhere to start. have your cooling system pressure tested. Only way to really know for sure. Oh..also make sure your fan is working!!!! You might have a faulty fan switch.

like snownbird33 said, first you need to make sure the cooling system is burped. if all the air is'nt removed it will run hot.second make sure your cooling fans are operating, they useually want come on until it reaches around 227 degrees,or the a/c is turned on.third make sure the water pump is'nt leaking if it's a 3.1 liter or 3100 (same engine ) they are bad about the water pump leaking or the blades on the pump are corroded off or propellas are slipping on the shaft.
