Question about 2001 Oldsmobile Alero
No is extremely unlikely you got a bad part. Did you purge the air out of the system after you replaced the thermostat? If not do the following to purge it. o This is the generic method to purge air from the cooling system.
Use a floor jack and raise the front of the car as high as possible, then fill the coolant recovery tank full and run the engine until it reaches the high end of normal zone on gauge, do not overheat the engine, then shut the engine down and run cold water over the radiator core, this will self bleed the system of air and the coolant will be pulled from the recovery tank to fill the void, repeat as necessary, never let the recovery tank run dry or more air will be pulled into the system.
o This is the generic method to purge air from the cooling system.
