Try testing the heat sending unit, to do this pull the wire from the tempature sensor and ground the senor wire to a good ground, next turn key on and watch gauge, if it moves over to hot replace the sending unit, if it does not you have one of four problems, one a bad gauge and that I can give you instructions on how to replace it also if other gauges are not working it could be the voltage regulater in the dash,and that you would need instructions on how to fix it.

99 Firebird still overheating after repairs and antifreeze


overheating is most likely a bad thermostat, but the coolant loss is a second big concern. Does the exhaust look like steam? You could have a cracked block and the coolant is leaking into the engine. Also check the oil for contamination.
