Can't locate thermostat for 2001 olds silhouette?


Under your front hood, locate your top radiator hose and follow it to where it connects to your engine. The fitting that it attaches to, (and is held on that fitting with a large hose clamp), is the housing for your thermostat. Access the thermostat by removing the hose first, and then by removing the two bolts that hold the housing on to the engine, you will have to pry the housing away from the engine with a standard blade screw driver. once the housing is removed, the thermostat will be visible. note the direction the thermostat is in before removing it. Because it can go back in either way...but only the right way will allow the water to flow correctly in and out of your engine block, so put the new one back in the spot the old one came out of and in the same direction as the old one was in. But before you do that.,, use a putty knife to carefully scrape any pieces or the whole gasket that seals the housing to the engine. the new thermostat will come with a new gasket to use when you put the new thermostat in your system. Make sure your car engine is absolutely cooled off by removing your radiator cap before disconnecting the radiator hose from the thermostat housing. work carefully and good luck be with you.

I have a 2001 oldsmobile silhouette and I need to change the spark plugs I see the three up front but I am not sure how to get to the three in the back?


You'll have to rotate the engine forward.Remove the air cleaner duct and accelerator cable.Place transmission in neutral(Block rear wheels). Remove the two bolts and detach driver's side torque strut(front engine mounts) .remove one bolt from radiator side of the passenger side torque strut. Use a ratchering strap attach to radiator support and engine lifting eye,rotate engine forward. remove coil pack to ease access to spark plugs. Good luck!!

Wher is the thermostat located on a 2000 olds silhouette?


Follow the large radiator inlet hose from the radiator, to the thermostat housing. Once the housing is located, simply remove the housing to expose the thermostat. It may be necessary to remove the air cleaner and duct assembly, and the crossover exhaust pipe, as well.

Lower intake manifold gasket leaking 02 Olds Silhouette


This is basicly a very time consuming job rather than a physically hard one to complete. In order to replace the gasket you must remove the intake plenum,throttle body, and misc. vacuum hoses. The wiring harness connections must also be disconnected. Finally the intake manifold is exposed. The bolts holding the manifold to the block are removed exposing the leaking gasket. After removing the push rods and placing them in the correct order to be replaced the gasket and sealants can be removed. Finally replace everything in reverse order. Be sure to consult a GM manual for correct bolt torch specs. The correct specs for the manifold bolts usually come with the gasket. Make sure to change your oil a few times after this job in case any coolant entered the block. Also,change the thermostat and the oil seal on the distributor half shaft cap while you have everything off. Good Luck

Front hub/bearing replacement


You will find that after you remove the hub, you will need to take it to someone with an engineering press to get the old one out and press the new one in.
Good luck
