Overheating might be from low coolant level due to the leak. Something wasn't hooked up properly it sounds like. You'll have to repair the leak first. Take it back to the shop that did the work so they can make it right.

These cars need to be bled out when you drain the cooling system. If you do not get the air out you will overheat the engine. I would look here first. The bleeder is located just behind the upper radiator hose it is 10 mm.

don't hav answer but have questions about bleeding the air out how do u get all the air out what to do from start to finnsh if u don't mind me. Asking and I also changed my water pump and now for some reason won't rev past 2.5 grand someone told me to reset the computer by disconnect the positive cable from battery then I was told it may just a small fraction out time but it don't miss has slite hesitation some Times then some times u crank it up and has perfect throttle response and rev with no problems and it will go back to sputters like sputter box at 2 to 2.5 Grand
