Follow the radiator hoses and you will come to the thermostat housing. For your particular car it could be on either the left or right side. i'm almost sure it is on the right side near the radiator cap at the top . The housing is about 3 inches in diameter and formed with a rounded top, and is connected to a radiator hose.It has two bolts that attach it to the engine.The side that does not have this is not the thermostat housing. When you find it. Drain some of the fluid to prevent it from overflowing when you remove the hose. take off the clamps holding the hose.Remove the housing and thermostat. Be careful to install the new Thermostat in the exact same position you removed the old one. And clean the surfaces where the new gasket is going to be installed.To prevent leakage . Replace eveything back making sure the thermostat is in position .( Flat on the surface.) tighten the bolts.Do not over tighten them just a good snug fit. Replace your hoses and , refill the radiator with fluid.

We have an olds cutlass ciera / station wagon. the check engine light came on.

I would have someone check the computer for trouble codes then go from there. You can research the steps online and do it yourself if you like. It only takes a paper clip to make the light flash to get the codes.
Do you know if the cooling fan works ?

Motor overheats

I don't know your car type, but in general, maybe

- thermostat has failed, stuck closed

- radiator hose has gone soft and collapsed

- coolant temp sensor has failed

- drive to radiator fan has failed (this can be hydraulic, electric or a belt)

- failed head gasket allowing combustion gases into the water jacket
