Does the 98 use Dex-cool (red coolant) or regular glycol (green stuff). As far as overheating is it the guage that's messing up or have you checked the temp with another device?

the green stuff, looks like it needed some more. I drove it about 20minutes and it was fine. It was over heating in about 5 minutes before.

We use heat as a last resort. Usually some pb and a few raps on the bleeder and the adjacent area will crack it free. We actually have a couple special bleeder sockets. They are wide open in side so they will go right down to the caliper and the lands are whole length of the socket. Usually PB them, put the socket on and rap it a couple times. Usually they will turn right out after that. One other trick is to give them a quick snap type pull, this is less prone to breaking than a steady pull.
Lastly if you are having issues, take to caliper off the car and work on it on the bench or in a vise.

I realize I am a little late at posting this, but I use PB Blaster like it was going out of style. I am a mechanic and run into stuck nuts and bolts all the time like all mechanics. There is one trick (other than a blue tipped wrench) that works better as a penetration fluid and most may not believe it until they see it, but try apple cider vinegar. I have a sure shot atomizer just for the stuff, anytime PB let's me down I reach for that.

Good call on the Apple cider vinegar, I tried it and it does really work and works good at that.
