You most likely have air in the system. These things can be a royal pain to get the air bleed out of the system.
Look back next to the brake booster and you will see a rubber tube with a screw cap in the end of it(this is the heater bleed), also on the front of the intake area you will see a black tube with an allen sloted cap.
Remove the slotted cap and screw the screw cc on the rubber tube. Add coolant to the coolant jug allowing the system to equalize until no more coolant can be added. Add as much coolant as possible to the engine fill( the sloted cap near intake). The heater air bleed will remain open.Replace the engine fill cap.Start the engine and turn the heater to MAX position.Close the heater air bleed when a steady stream of coolant comes from it, during engine idle. Allow the engine to idle for five minutes, add coolant to the degas bottle as needed to maintain the cold fill MAX mark.Reopen the heater air bleed to release any entrapped air and close again. Maintain engine speed of 2,000 rpm for 3-5 minutes or until hot air comes from the heater.Return to idle and verify hot air is still coming from the heater. Set the heater temperature setting to 75° F and allow the vehicle to idle for two minutes.Shut the engine off and allow to cool.After the engine has cooled, add coolant to the degas bottle to bring the level to the cold fill MAX mark. This should have the air out of the system.

There is a hose on the side of the coolant resevoir that has a straight blade screwdriver fitting in it. Open the fitting and this will bleed the heads on the LS. Without opening this you will never get the air out of the head, trust me.

did the electric fan on the radiator start up? if this dont start up, it can get the engine overheated , specily if the car run in hot weather , an when the car stay on idle . The other problem is the engine head , the head gasket can blow and you get the compresion presure in the water chanal .Try to se of the oil on engine is gray? If gray you must change head gasket.

– Mark direction of rotation of toothed belt with coloured felt tip marker pen. – Turn crankshaft to TDC. Mark on toothed belt guard -A- must align with mark on V-belt pulley -B-. – Check position of camshaft pulleys. The larger hole in the locking plates -arrows- must face inwards. Note If the larger hole in the locking plate is positioned to the outside on the toothed belt pulley, the crankshaft must be turned one revolution in direction of engine rotation. – Remove sealing plug -arrow- from left side of cylinder block. The TDC drilling in the crankshaft must be visible (or able to be felt) in the sealing plug hole. – Screw clamping bolt -3242- carefully into hole onto limit stop so that the crankshaft is secured against turning. – Remove central toothed belt guard. – Unscrew vibration damper. Note The vibration damper is secured to the crankshaft with 8 bolts. – First remove bolt -1- from oil filter housing, then remove bolts -2- for toothed belt tensioning element cover. – Remove cover. Note t The toothed belt tensioning element is oil dampened. It can therefore only be pushed back slowly. t Use locking pin -T40011- to lock tensioning element. – If necessary, align holes in housing and on tensioning element piston, before tensioning using long nose pliers or a thin wire. – Turn tensioning lever of toothed belt tensioning roller -1- in -direction of arrow- using hexagon key. – Secure tensioning element with locking pin -T40011- when the tensioning lever of the toothed belt tensioning element -2- has been pushed back so that the holes in the housing and the pistons align. – Seat the camshaft clamp -T40005- into the camshaft locking plates and loosen the securing bolts approx. 5 turns. – Remove camshaft clamp -T40005- again. – Now pull the camshaft pulleys off the tapers using two-arm puller -T40001- and legs -T40001/2-. – Loosen tensioning roller -arrow- and remove toothed belt.
