Question about 1997 Oldsmobile Cutlass
Follow your top radiator hose to where it meets the engine block. Your thermostat is located under that metal connection, that the hose connects to.
To change it, drain out some of your coolant (enough to get it below the height of the connection) undo the 2 bolts that hold that metal connection on. Seperate the 2, and you'll see the thermostat. Remove it (it just pops out) clean off the old gasket material and sealer. Place new sealer on both sides of the new gasket (just a little) and put it back together. Becareful not to overtighten. Refill the coolant, start the car and check for leaks.
