Best Answer

The low water level sensor is in your radiator overflow resivoir. The reservoir is supposed to have a certain amount of coolant in it but if it's low, the light comes on. This has nothing to do with the radiator being empty. True, if the reservoir is left unchecked the radiator may eventually become low and then you will overheat but until then, it's just telling you the reservoir is low.

If you are talking about the low coolant light then it is just low of coolant. Add coolant to the recovery tank. If you are talking about the coolant temperature light, then the engine is overheating. You may need to have the cooling system serviced. Drain the coolant and flush the system. Install a new thermostat, and add a 50/50 mix of antifreeze and distilled water.

Where is the thermostat on a 2000 Oldsmobile Intrigue and how do you go about replacing it?

It is located on the front passenger side of the motor. It is part of the water neck assembly. You have to replace the entire unit neck and all. They run about 50 dollars. Actually the thermostat on the 2000 Intrigue is located on the drivers side of the motor.

To change the water pump simply remove the bolts from the waterpump, pull it off and replace with new. The power steering pump will need to be loosened and moved aside to remove one bolt. Clean old gasket from engine block and replace with new gasket and replace with new waterpump.
