SOURCE: 1996 buick roadmaster keeps overheating:

A shotgun approach to repairs can really rack up the bills.

If your symptoms are loss of water and you have replaced the thermostat, you more than likely have an issue with steam. And that steam more than often comes from a bad head gasket. Most head gasket gasket failures seem to be confined to the water side initially, but let it go on bigger damage will occur.
You can buy a litmus test strip to dunk in the coolant. It will indicate if there are exhaust residuals in the water and thus a gasket failure.

However it may just be something simple, given that you have just about replaced everything:

have you given the radiator a good hosing inside and out?
is the radiator fan running when it should be?

You should take it to a rad shop and get the whole cooling system cleaned and flushed,then pressure tested to eliminate it before goig any furter because an y other cause of overheating is going to cost you a bundle.

SOURCE: change headlight 2006 Buick LaCrosse

The bright light fitting is the same as the dim so take it apart fist to see how the cover screws off/on and the light comes out. Both the cover and the bulb are removed by a standard twist to the counterclockwise and replaced by a twist to the clockwise. Now to the dim light. You have to release the entire light assembly before you can remove the screw-on cover to reach the light. On the rear edge of the light unit closest to the engine is a white locking tab. Pull that tab up just to the point where it releases…pull too far and it locks again. Next, locate the other locking bracket which is a metal bracket in the center-rear of the light assembly. This bracket is held down by a screw. Remove the screw with a 10mm wrench. Lift the bracket just like you did the white bracket. You should now be able to pull (or pry) the entire light unit forward a little. Depending on the size of your hands this might be enough. If not, then you need to release the plastic bumper assembly to give you a little more space. This is done by removing two expansion locking pins, one that holds the little plastic strip down between the bright and dim lights and one that is located inside a rubber bumper on the engine side of the light unit. To remove these locking pins, pull or pry up the little tab in the center of the pin just like you were pulling a nail by the head. That should give you more space.

Changed thermostat water pump and radiator on my 2001 Buick Century but still keep running hot...what else could be the problem???HELP PLEASE

Check to see if the radiator fan is on when the AC is on. The new thermostat may have a higher operating temperature than the old one. The thermostat could have been installed upside down. The gauge is defective and reading the wrong temperature.

Check the radiator isn't, blocked ,then check head gaskets for leaks by putting compressed air in the cylinders and see if bubbles come into the radiator with the cap off.

2006 300c water hose came off about a week after changing out radiator now car is running hot again. Runs good for about 20 minutes then it gets hot and sprays a mist of water near the thermostat that's...

The mist of water is the first thing to fix. And while fixing that replace the thermostat. Anytime a radiator or water pump is replaced, the T stat should also be replaced.

No Heat

It Sounds Like You Have Either A Faulty Heater control Valve Or On The High Side A Bad ATC (Automatic Temperature Control). Check The Hoses That Go Into The Heater Core Both Should Be Hot At Normal Operating Temp. If The Outlet side Is cold Or Luke Warm You Have A Bad HCV.

I just changed the water pump, thermostat, and flushed the heater core. I ran the car for a while with the surge tank cover off and kept filling it. As soon as I got on th e-way it overheated.

The surge tank should only have a little water in it, not full. I hope you didn't overfill it, this can cause your problem, but I would look at the radiator and make sure it is not plugged and your cooling fans, make sure they are running as well. Then last but not least your water pump may be bad even though you changed it, check for good flow through the radiator, if flow is good and strong then check the fans. You have already done most of what can be done, make sure the thermostat is not in backwards, in fact take it out and see if the car runs cooler, this will help pinpoint the issue also.
