What is causing overheating?

Check your oil dipstick. If there's a grey/creamy sludge on it that means water is finding its way into the oil system. Your cylinder head gasket/cylinder head is faulty.

Fill your coolant bottle. Leave the top off. Start the engine and watch the coolant level. To begin with, you will see air bubbles escaping. This is normal. If bubbles continually appear or the coolant level 'shakes' violently, this indicates that exhaust gas is finding its way into the cooling system via a cracked cylinder head/faulty head gasket. Also look at the exhaust gas - is it clouds of white? If so - that's steam from water being burnt in the engine - a head problem.

Over heating is a sign of a cracked cylinder head/faulty head gasket.

The other causes of overheating includes a stuck thermostat or a leaking/blocked radiator.

If there's no sign of a coolant leak underneath your vehicle - suspect the cylinder head gasket

I was told i have a minor head gasket leak but i have not noticed any problems with its performance. how do i know if i should fix the 2 gaskets?

If you let a car run for a half hour, you can over heat &
ruin the exhaust converter.

There is a product called Combustion Leak Tester

It is a plastic tube the goes over the radiator or coolant
cap, in place of the cap & is filled with blue fluid,if it turns
yellow you have exhaust gases in the coolant,thus a head
gasket problem

A cylinder leak down test may be in order,certainly after
any repair or head work.

My 2000 malibus temperature gauge is always above half and eats anitfreeze like crazy! whats wrong with it?!

Most likely internal head gasket leak, all 3.1L and 3.4L engines are notorious for intake gasket (external leak can be seen on either side of engine intake manifold) or head gasket leaking (usually internally). If it goes thru coolant and there is no obvious leak on the ground than its internally burning the coolant. If leaking on the ground check below water pump while running, it may be leaking also. Ultimately its probably head gaskets.

After a long trip my chevy colorado will have white smoke come from the tail pipe after restarting and then stops after a few minutes ??? I need to use it on trips. What is happening?

White smoke is from water in the exhaust.
A failing head gasket can cause this.
Is your coolant level droping
Goes the oil on your dipstick look milky
Both of these are symptoms of a blown head gasket.

the problem can also be a cracked head or cylinder wall

Have a leak down test done to confirm if its a head gasket leak.

I have a VERY slow radiator leak in a 2006 Pilot (a pint over two months) and my engine light came on recently. The mechanic ran the test and said it was the catalytic converter. Since they can't find...

If your loosing coolant and they can't find out why then it could be a head gasket issue or engine flaw that is allowing coolant into the exhaust. This could ruin a catalytic converter and the 02 sensor. You need to do what was advised.
