Since you've had to replace the intake manifold gaskets (I hope you did upper and lower if it's a 3.8L) I suspect that the previous owner used some kind of stop leak "goop" to stop the manifold from leaking. I'd suggest using a good quality cooling system cleaner such as Prestone Super Flush or GM part number 10-5037 (19286424). BUT be prepared for something to spring a leak. Depending on how much stop leak "goop" is in there a radiator replacement may also be needed to solve the problem. HTH. -Jim

possibly a faulty water pump, or could also be a plugged radiator. Make sure the cooling fans are coming on. Grand ams are notorious for intake and Headgasket leaks
