SOURCE: drain the antifreeze on a oldsmobile silhouette

Under the bottom of the radiator on the there is a drain ****, you will have to raise the car and crawl under it to see it, be careful to not break it, the screw in plug is fragile, it will be hard to unscrew.

The first thing i would check is all 4 abs sensors at the wheels.You can do this with a volt meter set on ac voltage and spin the wheel if it generates voltage at all on the meter its good.

SOURCE: vehicle is overheating...2000 oldsmobile silhouette

It's possible you have a blown head gasket. In that case, the heater core which is above the engine fills with exhaust and stops working. To verify this condition, check exhaust for excessive white smoke. If leak is still small, it's possible you won't see much. In that case have a shop check the radiator for hydrocarbons (exhaust). If the test shows any in cooling system, you definitely have a head gasket problem.
I'd also check the thermostat. Sometimes it can give similar symptom but more often than not this will trace back to the hg.

1999 silhouette has leaking water pump seal can this cause serpentine belt failure due coolant or steam contacting belt

Yes it can. The material that todays belts are made of DO NOT like any foreign liquids contacting them with the exception of water. Once engine coolant gets on it, it's impossible to get it off. It will slip and squeel no matter how much you try to rinse it off. If you put anything on it other than water you will only make it worse and then it will start to Glaze onto the pulleys. The only fix is to fix your leak and replace the belt.

Oldsmobile silhouette 1999 heater does not heat in the van

it's either because your coolant isn't hot enough or your heater core is clogged and needs to be replaced.. you might wanna replace your thermostat.. because if thats stuck open then your coolant will constantly be cooled .. and thats not a good thing!!
