In my case, I found that the suction hose that connects to the inside of the radiator overflow/filler tank cap (front left side of engine compartment) had dropped off into the tank, causing the radiator to run dry, causing overheat. It became apparent when the fans would run for extended periods after shutting the car down. Of course, the temperature gage was showing it, but who looks at that?

Follow the large hose at the top of the radiator. Where this goes into the motor you will find a connector which the hose connects to and also bolts to the engine block. Unbolt it from the engine and the thermostat will be right there. Let me know if this helps or not.

Only 2 parts remaining are the thermostat and waterpump. Always start with the thermostat when diagnosing an overheating problem. If the car is overheating constantly under all conditions and coolant is backing up into the reservoir, it's very likely to be the thermostat. If it only overheats at low speed or idling, it's more likely the waterpump.

How do I replace the water pump in a 96 Oldsmobile Aurora?

the water pump is driven by a small belt at the back of the front cylinder head.  the pump needs to be removed with a special socket. From what i recall the pump has tabs on it that lock into the housing & i think its reverse thread / turn right to remove the pump instead of left
