check the type of coolant u have they recommend dexcool for all gm vechicles and its the orange color not the green color coolant plus check the fan operation and if thts not it burp the system or flush the system it could be clogged
possible air pocket in cooling system. try bleeding it
same fuel pump wire harness or fuel pump..make sure you have the fuse for the heater first
check water pump-do you lose radiator flluid
