patience , and a 13 MM wrench , you gotta get your arms in there deep , that lower bolt does not need to come all the way off , the thermostat housing has a slot at the bottom for easier access , loosen it about 3.4 of the way and you can get the housing out , experience says a premium thermostat will give you grief trying to reinstall , get a regular duty thermostat .reverse procedure.

SOURCE: buick is overheating
Follow the radiator hoses from the radiator to the block. Check the upper radiator hose first. At the end of one of these hoses will be a housing to which the hose is connected. The housing is bolted to the block. The thermostat is in that housing.
Remove termostat housing bolts. Note orientation of old thermostat. Clean gasket material off housing and block. Put on new gasket, install thermostat. Replace housing, etc.
You may have to disconnect/remove other parts to get to the housing botls, maybe not.

I hope it's just the radiator cap... It should be a 14# (14 psi - 14 pounds of pressure) cap ... The valve in the cap may be broken/closed and create a high pressure in the colling system. High pressure means high temperature.
If so, you can temporarily "loosen" the cap and it will run cooler (no pressure). Of course, replace the cap.
The ignition timing could be at fault; perhaps just a leaky vacuum hose, but that would light up the "Check Engine Light".
It could also mean a blown head gasket. If the gasket gets worse, you will see white smoke and excess water drops out the tailpipe. The oil dipstick will have a milky substance on it (water and oil mixed), and the engine will start running noticeably rough ( not just slighhtly rough).
Hope this helps!

is it HOT or just not as cold. If its HOT, like heated air, there is a door problem, if its just not cool, the a/c refridgerent is low and will need a recharge, most likely the comp is leaking.
