I had that problem before, the intake manifold gasket leaks. After replacing it runs like a charm. I have an '01 also and still have it.

A common problem is that the electric fan will not operate. You need to determine if the fan is coming on when the vehicle gets warm.

When you replaced the coolant, were you sure that you got all of the air out of the cooling system? If you have any air in the system, it will cause your system to run hot!

SOURCE: Car overheating

there should be a cap some where but if not there should be some sort of hose coming out of the top of the radiator pull the hose and fill it up from there, and top it all the way off, make it spill, all the way full! and when an engine over heats it usually ruins the thermostat so i would recomend replacing it also

SOURCE: My Olds Silhoute is overheating...

I must say it is a curious problem, we recently got a used 2001 and have just had the same problem. The way it was heating up I felt it was the thermostat so changed that but didnt help. It appears that air pockets are causeing the over heating. On the thermostat houseing is a bleeder vaule which you can use to get the air out. It takes a little time to get all the air out but once I bleed the system out it seems to be fine now. Hope this helps

SOURCE: 98 Acura CL oil in coolant/radiator

Check the oil, is the oil milky on the dipstick?
Check the Transmission Fliud level, Low?

If it is engine oil it could be a head gasket, if it is transmission oil then the cooling lines in the lower tank of the radiator may be leaking.

I have a 1998 oldsmobile aurora that is overheating. no leaks, runs fine then temp goes up and coolant boils up to the resevoir cap and comes out around the cap. replaced thermostat. fan comes on

Try changing radiator cap if there is no water in the oil it is not a head gasket could be system just needs a flush. It could also be the water pump is not pumping well try the cap first.

Ok here we go......overheating,loosing coolant,and steam and bubbling from resivoir cap.things ive looked at are touched radiator hose to check for heat/circulation,purge line/nipple,fans both run,and i...

Possibly it is the head gasket but I would replace the thermostat first then verify the water pump is actually working and you aren't feeling vibration from the motor in that radiator line instead of the pump working. If the thermostat and water pump are good then look at the head gasket which will most likely present as low compression or very high compression on 1 or more cylinders.

Causes for overheating in a 1997 oldsmobile aurora

Do the fan(s) come on when hot? Blow out the radiator core with compressed air (from the engine side) to clear it of bugs and other debris. Make sure the radiator is full to the top (when cold) and check the radiator cap seal rubber and the over-flow tank and tubing for leakage. It's possible that the water pump impeller is slipping on it's shaft and not pumping water properly. Remove the thermostat temporarily and remove the radiator cap. Remove some of the water so that the level is somewhat below the cap bottom, then start the engine and watch for rapidly moving water. That will show that the pump is moving water well. Allow the engine to heat up and keep track of the water movement. Shut the engine off at low end of 'normal' on the temp gauge and replace the cap so that it doesn't blow out boiling water into your face. Replace the thermostat and top up the water when cold again.

Engine overheating

If the water pump is pumping you should be able to see moving water/engine coolant in the radiator when the radiator cap is removed and the thermostat is open.
Have you checked to see if your electric cooling fan is operating properly?
