You could check it with a meter compared to a new part, or with a scanner.
It provides resistance in the circuit to the computer depending on temp.

SOURCE: Olds silhouette heater blows cold air

as long as the engine temperature is normal, i would suspect a clogged heater core, the dex-cool antifreeze is notorious for building up deposits in cooling system. have heater core flushed first to see if it makes any difference

Here are some possible causes, I would start with anything related to replacing the intake.

Air leaks in intake manifold, exhaust pipes or exhaust manifold
Fuel control sensor is out of calibration
Low fuel pressure (fuel filter clogged, pressure regulator failure)
One or more injectors restricted or pressure regulator has failed
O2 sensors contaminated, deteriorated or has failed
Vacuum hose is disconnected, broken, leaking or loose

SOURCE: 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

Why does my engine light come on after a oil change


Possibly they left the intake temperature sensor unplugged after checking the air filter, or knocked a wire loose when changing the oil filter.

My 2000 olds silhouette will start and run, as long as you have your foot on the gas, but as soon as you take it off it dies. Will not idle. Any ideas??


First eliminate all vacuum or air leaks in the system. You may have a bad IAC ( idle air control) but try cleaning the throttle body first. Remove the intake snorkel, have someone hold the throttle wide open for you and scrub the back side of the throttle plate and surrounding bore with an old tooth brush and some carb cleaner. Be sure to spray some into the small holes next to the throttle plate. That should help stabilize the idle. If it still has a problem, replace the IAC.

2001 olds silhouette engine overheats


Time for Intake Gaskets and possibly head gaskets, very common problem with these, the intake gaskets go bad and the coolant actually burns in the cylinder and of course the cylinder pumps air into the coolant system because of intake gaskets being bad. :-(

You did not mention replacing the thermostat. That's the first thing to do. May I ask what prompted you to replace the intake gasket and radiator? Was this due to a previous overheating problem? MOre information will be helpful. Thanks.

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.
