1999 olds intrigue overheating problem..... waterpump

1999 olds intrigue...

1999 olds intrigue overheating problem..... waterpump failed... replaced waterpump and thermostat.....new fluid.. still overheats on road... at idle overheats.. rev up engine to 2200 rpm to get temp to go down.. has no heat below 1100 rpm. heat starts to flow at 2000 + rpm.. my car since new... have seen lots of chatter on line.... but GM dealerships don't know how to fix it... do I need to go back to gen GM parts?

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked to make sure the thermostat is working? What about the coolant level?

Brand new replaced twice. using different brand replacement parts.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '99 Oldsmobile?

GLS

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?
