If you let it overheat for too long (and it doesn't take long) it is possible the engine block is cracked. Inspect underneath for fluids leaking onto the ground.

1996 Pontiac Grand Am overheating


If its the 3.1L it could be your intake manifold gasket , the material used for the gasket does not react well with GM's Dex-Cool antifreeze. The leak may not be apparent at first, but I would pressure test the cooling system. If you look at the front of the motor by the belts , try to peek down at the intake manifold and check for slight seapage to an obvious leak.

If its either of the Quad-4's they were notorious for heads warping or cracking.

Overheating, no coolant loss


I have a 1996 Pontiac Firebird with the 3.8 L V6, and have had problems until I replaced the DexCool (it's never ran so good!) However relating to your problem, there was a class action lawsuit regaurding the 1996 GMC/BUICK/PONTIAC 3.1 L engine, due to DexCool destroying the engine/heads/etc. Follow the link - I do not know all of the details, but it may be worth checking out. 1996 was the first year that DexCool was used at GM.
Hope it helps.
