I had a similiar problem with my 1997 GMC 1500. The engine would sometimes even die while I was driving it. It turned out to be the sending unit (in the fuel tank). I replaced that about 2 years ago, and no trouble since.

97 seville overheats slowly and loses quite a bit of anti-freeze but not smoking,or mixing in the oil and not steaming uot of the exhast.

My first guess would be the cooling system has some air in it from the radiator job, or the thermostat may be sticking.
You say it is loosing coolant, so you are putting coolant in every day or week ? Is it loosing it on the ground when it overheats ?
If you are adding coolant but not seeing it boil over, it could be burning it and you would not see smoke from the exhaust.
