With the engine cold remove the recovery tank cap and the thermostat. Fill the cooling system at the thermostat hole in the engine. Once full, replace the thermostat and start the engine. Top off the coolant in the recovery tank with the engine running. If it continues to overheat have the coolant tested for combustion gases. If you have a Northstar it's probably a blown head gasket. All Northstar engines blow head gaskets sooner or later. HTH. - Jim
