How to Replace thermostat on 98 Oldsmobile silhouette?
I had to replace my thermostat. I moved the throttle head out of the way. I removed the air cleaner assy. I then removed the two bolts from the housing area and pulled out the thermostat. The tools I used were the 10mm/ 13mm/ flathead screw driver to remove air cleaner, and I also loosened four bolts on the aluminum covering below the throttle head. It took some time ( 2 hours) and patience. It helps if the vehicle is on ramps lifting up the front end of the vehicle. Thats how I did it.

Answer . This is difficult to do. it is located on the top of the engine on the right side. If you remove the air breather box first it will give you some room to work b…ut the back bolt on the thermostat is really difficult to get out due to lack of room to move the wrench. it takes several hours lots a patience.
Answer . \nFollow the top radiator hose down to the engine. It is in the water outlet.
you have to pop the hood and look at the mounting brackets there is i believe 2 or 3 wing nuts on the top along the hood latch mount. take them off so your whole headlight cas…ing comes out but make sure you do this slowly and pay attention because there are little holes that are guides for putting the mount back in. once you have done that then all you do is twist the black knob and the light pops out. all done. after that it is pretty easy. same system for the signal markers.

Answer . You didnt say what year and what engine
how do you get the throttle body off so I can reach the thermostat house to replace the thermostat? Does the exhaust shield also need to come off? I have removed one bolt and …two nuts on the throttle housing, are there more ? I can't find them.
Why could my 1997 Oldsmobile silhouette run hot after replacing water pump and thermostat on vehicle?
If it wasn't running hot before the changes you may have an airlock in the water system. If it was running hot before it might still be an airlock or it could be the head gask…et leaking. Whichever it is it needs sorting quickly. The best placed to cure this problem are your local garage or dealership. But you could try this first: With the engine cold and all the heater controls set to hot, remove the top from the expansion bottle. Make sure there's the required level of fluid in it then squeeze the thick radiator hoses to try and move the air out of the system. Run the engine and check for more air. Replace the expansion botle cap. Note: Sludge in the water, continuous air bubbles, antifreeze colour change or oil in the water all indicate headgasket leaks
Follow the upper radiator hose to the engine - the thermostat is in the bulb housing that that hose attaches to.
Tranny Side of the Motor, under the throttle body. There are 2 bolts holding the Thermostat housing to the block, and the lower bolt hole is slotted so you don't need to pull …that bolt all the way out to get the housing off so you can get at the thermostat... Hope this helps someone!
The thermostat is located on the left side of the engine block. Follow the top radiator hose back and it will lead you to the housing. You'll need to remove the air filer and …hoses that are in your way and I recommend having a swivel adaptor handy to reach the rear bolt on the housing. It is a very tight fit to get to and make sure you give yourself a couple hours to finish it up.
Take it to a garage it's a big job cost me $300. to get it done have to tear half the motor apart. Idiot GM does it on purpose! Murray
