There is no pressure relief valve for the cooling system. The Northstar engines are basically junk and when you have an overheating issue, it means the heads are gone. Either buy another car, or get yourself another engine (although that won't be much better). You'll sink thousands into that crapbox to fix the overheating issue and it's probably not worth it. Good Luck!
