1995-2005 Chevy Cavaliers

If a 1996 Chevy Cavalier is over heating even after the water pump etc was replaced and the system was bled could it be a bad water pump?

Overheating can be caused by a blown head gasket or cracked head. Blown head gaskets are quite common on newer four cylinder American cars.

Your radiador core can be blocked or radiator grille dirty and resricted , thermostat faulty , radiator cap not maintaining proper pressure .

Check to see if cooling fan on radiator is turning when car is in operating temp, or if air conditioner is on. If it is not turning it may have a burnt motor or bad relay. Try a jumper wire to test fan motor.

I can't tell much from what you've written. But if it's heating up quickly, your thermostat might just be sticking. Fortunately they're like 10 bucks and easily replaced. But it could also be a cracked head gasket. Much more pricey and difficult to replace

Put your Chevy Cavalier in neutral and then crank it once without starting the car. This will turn on the electrical system and you need to allow it to sit like that for several minutes for everything to reset itself.
