My monte Carlo has the same exact problem. Also I have an hard time keeping the car from overheating. I ve changed the water pump and radiator as well and still cant seem to get the problem under control. Also I have difficulties cranking my car. As if my car has a kill switch. -

I had known that my radiator was rotted out and needed to be replaced at 90000 miles but I did not have the money to buy it so I just got a coolant flush and my car stopped overheating. 1.5 yrs later same problem, car overheating again. I got another coolant flush and it did the trick about 2 weeks after that I put the pedal to the floor and went all the way up to 5500 rpm. A few minutes later my car was overheating and I smelled coolant. I took it to the shop, I had blown the water pump and intake manifold because there was too much pressure in the system because of the rotted out radiator creating a lot of restriction. Total repair bill was $1357 which according to this website is a bargain. Painful lesson learned. -
