Question about 1999 Oldsmobile Silhouette
This one is out there but is it possible that the thermostat was not actually replaced? I replaced the thermostat in my 1999 Oldsmobile about a month ago and it is a relatively difficult procedure compared with other vehicles I have replaced the thermostat in. It took me about 3-4 hours. There are just 2 bolts to remove it but they are in a very difficult place to get your hands or tools into. Due to the difficult procedure is it possible that the mechanic did not actually do the work? If you used a trustworthy mechanic or if you were able to see the old parts I would continue to look for other solutions. Otherwise circle back around to the thermostat as one possibility. Also check make sure you have enough coolant in your vehicle. Take the cap of the radiator before you drive it that day. Make sure there is coolant to the top of the radiator and also check the over flow to make sure it is at it's proper level. There is a mark on the side of the over flow reserve to show the proper level. Good luck.
