What motor do you have? The V8, you can remove just the intake manifold and the valve covers/rocker arms to remove the lifter. The V6, I believe you need to remove the head to access the lifters.

SOURCE: diagram for removing a tensioner from 99 Olds Intrigue 3.8

Either in the center of the tension pulley or on the arm that the tension pulley is bolted to there is a square hole that is the size of the square on a 1/2" ratchet. Take a 1/2" ratchet and stick it in that hole and I think most of them you put it in the tighten position and pull on the ratchet. the tension will release and you can remove the belt.

Good Luck

SOURCE: 2000 Olds intrigue overheating

Sure could. If the thermostat is stuck closed, it'll overheat. My question to you is - after you replaced the hoses (which for future reference, usually aren't the cause of overheating), did you burp the cooling system? When you removed and then reinstalled hoses and topped off the coolant, you trapped air bubbles in the system. These get stuck behind the thermostat. Since the cooling system is sealed and pressurized, these trapped bubbles keep the thermostat from opening - you need to burp the system.

It's easy to do. If you can, jack up the car so the thermostat is pointed somewhat upward. Start the car, and watch the gauge. When it gets 3/4 of the way to overheating, turn off the car. At this point, there are a lot of air bubbles trapped behind the thermostat and it can't open. Let the car cool off, then slowly open the radiator cap. You should hear a venting of pressure, and you'll probably hear coolant bubbling and running, both in the system and into the overflow tank. Now top off the coolant, and do it all over again. Keep doing this until you can idle the car and it won't overheat. Let it cool a final time, pop the cap again, and then go for a drive in your neighborhood - just keep circling the block if need be. Drive easy at first, watching the gauge at all times, and then if it behaves, get on the throttle and get the RPM up some with some stronger acceleration. If you still don't overheat, you've fully purged the air from the system. If you do start to overheat, pull over and let it cool, and nurse the car back home. Once it's cooled down, pop the cap again. Top off the coolant if you need to after the air is purged, and go drive again. Check your heat too - if you get good, hot air out of the climate control, you should have adequate coolant in the system.

If you keep on having overheating trouble, then you have a more serious issue than just air in the system. You may have a clogged radiator (feel the surface of it carefully - if you find irregularity in the temperature of the radiator's surface - cold spots, for example - you will need to remove the radiator and have it blown out and pressure-checked by a radiator shop. You may also have a torn head gasket (MAJOR repair job), or for some reason (and this is a long shot) your ignition timing may not be correct. There are a lot of things that can cause overheating (I've chased all of them in the last couple months on my wife's car, before finding and replacing a bad head gasket). Start with this troubleshooting though, and post a followup here as a reply to this post if you don't solve it, and we'll go from there.

Replacing an alternater in 2000 oldsmobile intrigue...where is it???

On the 2001, it is located on the right side of the engine, below the belt driven items. There are three bolts holding it in place, including a very long one that is attached through the bottom belt pulley. You will need to remove the radiator in order to get the alternator out. There is no way around it besides lifting the engine. It is possible to remove the alternator, but there is not enough room to maneuver the thing out of the engine unless you remove the radiator. Unless you are or know a handy mechanic in your family, you will need to pay to have this done. It takes about an hour and a half to do.

Replacing the battery on a 94 Buick Century Stationwagon

it is a support bar that comes in handy in a front end collision, but you will be fine removing it long enough to replace the battery.
