No its a tight fit but take the belt off and remove battery and with a bent 15mm you can take it off... it slides in and out and is held with 2 bolts

Why 1998 olds intrigue is running hot.


1) Is it really running hot, or is the temperature sending unit or gauge incorrect? You could use an alternate temperature sensor to test - infrared temperature gauge.
2) Just because the radiator was cleaned out doesn't mean it isnt blocked. Check to see that water will flow through the radiator.

Need to drain coolant from 1998 Olds Intrigue. What is best way? (3800 Engine)


COOLANT CHANGEON THE RADIATOR (LOWER DRIVERS SIDE FACING THE MOTOR) THERE IS A PLASTIC LIKE PLUG THAT YOU TURN COUNTER CLOCKWISE ABOUT 3/4 OF A TURN, THEN YOU CAN PULL IT OUT ABOUT 1/2 AN INCH THIS WILL DRAIN THE RADIATOR, THEN YOU CAN PUSH THE PLUG BACK IN AND TURN IT UNTIL YOU FEEL IT LOCK BACK IN PLACE. REFILL RADIATOR WITH 3 PARTS COOLANT TO 1 PART WATER.
1998-'99 Intrigues equipped with the 3800 engine have a specific process for replacing antifreeze. It is somewhat of a lengthy process and you should refer to your owners manual for doing this. After you empty and flush your system with water (garden hose), only fill the system with green 50/50 antifreeze, NOT Dex-Cool. Avoid Dex-Cool. If you bring your Intrigue to a shop to get serviced, make sure and inform whoever doing repairs and/or leave a note (clearly visible) to NOT use Dex-Cool if they're doing any work pertaining to cooling system.

Climate control display for Outside temperature


Had the same problem, replaced the ambient air temp sensor in front of the radiator. Cost is like 10-15 bucks. Don't worry if temp doesn't change right away. Took me about 5 miles and then it worked great.

99 Olds Intruige removing the alternator


disconnect the + lead of the battery
Remove the wires going to the alternator. Mark them with a piece of tape so you can put them back to the same terminal.
there are probably two bolts that need to be removed. One will be fastened to a slotted strap. Removing this one will allow the alternator to pivot on the remaining bolt. This will be the one that allows the fan belt to be removed from the pulley on the alternator. Removing the 2nd will allow the alternator to be removed from the engine.
Installation of the replacement is the reverse procedure. Aftere you install the 2nd bolt, put the fan belt back in the slot and pull the alternator so the slack is taken up in the belt, then tighten the bolt

Alternator in a 99 olds' intrigue


you have to pull the radiator to get the alternator out. had to do this couple months ago. then after you get it unbolted you need to slide it past exhaust and out toward the drivers side of car. pulling radiator was rediculous, but the only way!!!! hope that helps
