Are you sure it's overheating? Are you going by the gauge on the cluster panel? If so change out the temperature sending unit. It is possible it is giving you a false reading in the car is fine.

Also certain Vehicles like the Pontiac Trans Am have what is called a bleeder system. You have to open the small valve open to help burp the system out. Also on some cars for some reason if you put it on a slight incline from the front a couple inches higher than the back it seems to burp the system better along with leaving your raditor cap off while doing this.
