Car overheats and Air blows hot at idle?

This is a water pump or worse yet, a head gasket issue which is very common on the 1998 deville. I had the same exact problem but mine was fortunately a water pump. I was leaking fluid and adding anti-freeze every 3 days. I had a pressure check and it led to the water pump. Be sure to have the gaskets replaced within it as well. The thermostate is located in that housing too so have them check that since they're already in it.

check to see if there is a valve (usually vacuum actuated) inline somewhere on the lines that go from the block to the heater core. Maybe it is stuck...

Make sure you put in the correct temp thermostat. GM usually has 2. A low temp and a high temp. Most shops will give ya the high temp just because thats usually what the book calls for. you might want to try a low temp. Also, sometimes, when a car runs hot and everything has been repaired....well, almost everything......it might be the head gaskets. And those my friend are no easy task. But..somewhere to start. have your cooling system pressure tested. Only way to really know for sure. Oh..also make sure your fan is working!!!! You might have a faulty fan switch.

Check for coolant flow at the Purge line,this is a common problem on the Northstar.
There is a small diameter hose coming from near the top of the coolant tank,this is the purge line.
With the engine idling,pull the purge line from the tank,if there is no coolant flow from this small hose,it is blocked and this will cause overheating.If the hose is clear, check for blockage at the nipple on the tank.

Hello: Open hood, stand in front of car look on left side (driver side) of engine toward the radiator, there will be a black metal guard, under the guard there will be a small belt. This is the belt that drives the water pump. Make sure the belt is there. If belt is there start car and with engine running check to be sure belt is turning and that the water pump is turning. If all that is okay then you may have blown head gaskets. To check head gaskets you need a sniffer tool to smell the engine coolant which will tell you if you have exhaust gas in the coolant.

Overheating can seriously damage a car's engine if left unchecked. Although overheating simply means that a car's engine temperature exceeds normal operating temperatures, the causes of overheating are varied. What follows is a brief list of some of the most common causes of engine overheating.

Hello and welcome to FixYa!
If you have overheating problem, it can lead to multiple
issues. You may be running on low coolant that's why the vehicle overheats. If
that's the case, please add coolant and make sure that it sits on the right
level, too much coolant can cause overheating too for coolant will overflow.
The vehicle may have a faulty or worn out radiator blower
motor that's why it overheats. If that's the case then you will need a blower
motor replacement to resolve the issue.
If the radiator is clogged with dirt and rusts this issue
occurs too. The coolant doesn't flow normally on the cooling system if it's
clogged. If that's the case, I strongly suggest that you have the radiator
flushed to drain out dirt and rusts. If you think that the radiator served you
enough then it's better to have it replaced.
Please do check the radiator hoses, If you have worn out
hoses it can cause coolant leakage which can result to overheating. A tiny hole
is good enough for the vehicle to overheat.
A faulty thermostat sensor can cause the issue too. If you
have worn out thermostat, the fan may not trigger that's why the fan won't work
when under stressed conditions. A blown radiator blower fuse can cause this
issue too so I suggest that you check the radiator blower fuse and replace it
when necessary. What causes the radiator blower fan fuse to blow? It's because
of a failing radiator blower motor, If that's the case have the radiator blower
fan motor replaced.
If the fluid in radiator doesn't circulate then it means
that you have a blown head gasket or a faulty water pump. I suggest that you go
for the water pump replacement first specially if you think that it's near the
end of it's service life. Usually, water pops out the radiator when engine is
reved (a sign of faulty water pump and possible blown head gasket).
Hope you find this information helpful enough and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!
