SOURCE: engine overheating
The same thing happened with my 01 cavalier. My dad replaced the thermostat and it did the same thing. Then he discovered that there is something called a temperature control sensor that had to be replaced because when the thermostat froze open, it destroyed the sensor. It was a lot cheaper than any of the other parts and once it was replaced, it worked fine.

If your car is equipped with a 3.1 or a 3.4 litre V6 and you have preformed all of the above listed work then I would have to say its the intake manifold gaskets. They commonly blow on these motors. Just a design flaw, nothing but replacing them when they leak can fix this. Also run a coolant pressure test on the system to check for minor things like a leak that you cant see from visual inspection. Hope this helps.

check to make sure fans are working for radiator. if not check coolant tempurature sensor, fuses, and relay. is all air out of coolant system!

o This is the generic method to purge air from the cooling system.
Use a floor jack and raise the front of the car as high as possible, then fill the coolant recovery tank full and run the engine until it reaches the high end of normal zone on gauge, do not overheat the engine, then shut the engine down and run cold water over the radiator core, this will self bleed the system of air and the coolant will be pulled from the recovery tank to fill the void, repeat as necessary, never let the recovery tank run dry or more air will be pulled into the system.
