    You fill it at the surge tank, it will be a plastic bottle.

The radiator expansion tank will be located in the top left or right corner of the bonnet bay and should have a yellow cap.
please rate this advice.

The only things you have left is to check the heater and make sure it is not plugged or else the temp. sw. is giving you a false reading. I am assuming you replaced the rad. and heater hoses.

Check the cooling fan, thermostat or radiator. I'd start with the basics and check to make sure cooling fans kick on. If they do, remove the thermostat and recheck. If it still fails and bottom and lower radiator hoses are hot then you have a plugged radiator

Thermistor problem in '95 olds aurora. what does it look like and where do you get one?


I am not sure I understand your question. However, I believe you are taking about the thermostat.
You will find the thermostat on the engine where the top radiator hose connects to the engine. There should be two bolts that you have to remove in order to remove the metal piece that conceals the thermostat. After you do this the thermostat should be visible and you can now just pull it out either by hand or by pliers. Make sure you do this when the car is cool and has not been ran for a few hours. If you work on a vehicles cooling system and the vehicle is hot you can get burned by hot anti freeze. To put the thermostat in just do the opposite as you did to take it out. Then remove your radiator cap and refill the radiator with anti freeze. Be sure you leave the cap off and ideal the engine for 15 or 20 minutes after you reassemble your car and fill it with anti freeze because if you do not do this you may end up with an air bubble in you block which will cause it to over heat again. You can buy a thermostat and anti freeze at any of your local auto part stores. I hope this helps you out at least a little bit. I wish I could actually be there to do this for you, but seems how I am not there that is impossible. If you have any other questions feel free to ask.

I just changed the radiator. How much antifreeze do I put in?


put a 50/50 mix. remove radiator cap when cold,start car let run 1 min and dump 50/50 mix till full, a little will come out cap when thermostat opens this is normal,when thermostat opens coolant will go down,continue to fill till full,put cap on and fill reservoir to cold mark,check reservoir after you run a day and fill if needed to the full cold mark again
