Thermastat? Also water pump could have gone bad but not likely...start with thermastat its a cheap and easy fix...start cheap and work your way up

Bleed your coolant using the bleed screw on the top of the thermostat housing. Also, note that the LT1 thermostat is different than the earlier SB Chevy stats.

On my LT1 i've got an air bleed screw right on the water neck where the thremostat is located. Last time when i did my heater core, i had trouble with overheating after due to air in the lines and ended up just leaving the front end jacked up overnight and using that bleeder screw to get all the air out.

Are both hoses coming from the heater core the same temp? upper and lower hoses the same temp?

it was my thermostat change it and i let it sit for a couple of minutes then drove my car back home and didn't overheat hopefully i solved dat problem
Easy way to check the thermostat is put it in a pot of water on the stove with a thermometer and visually watch for it to open as it gets to 180-190 degrees. Takes 10 minutes and might be worth the piece of mind.
