There are 4 drains on the sunroof (2 in each front corner, 2 in each rear corner).
If you want to check to see if they are clear, you can do this.
Get a squeeze bulb (about the size of a turkey baster) and squirt water down each drain, look for water draining out at the bottom of the car. For the rear drains, park the car on a slight uphill, and gently squeeze water down the drain trough on each side, here again, look for water draining out of the car.
If those ar clear, next step is to check the seal of the glass. The drains are only designed to take in a small amount of water, if there is too big of a gap between the panel and the body, it will over run the drain troughs (kind of like when the gutters on a house get stuff in them).
Finding water leaks is kind of a pain, but not if you take it a step at a time.
One thing to remember, water does not run uphill.
So to further water test it. Find a place where you can park it uphill or downhill, grab a flashlight, a friend and a hose.
Start at a low spot, and work your way around the sunroof (one person inside with the light, one outside with the hose). Just let the water run slowly, you don't want to use a nozzle or a spray.
Once you can see when the water starts leaking on the inside, you can narrow down the cause.

You need to open the sunroof fully and locate the small drain holes at each corner. They will be blocked with debris. Get a piece of welding wire or the likes and carefully unblock the hose by prodding and pouring water down it. When cleared the water shout run away freely.

Here is how I do it. Hope this helps.
AT Fluid Level Check (No Dipstick)
Fill through Check/Fill plug on the bottom to the rear of the transmission oil pan until fluid flows over from hole. Install plug and with engine running, shift transmission through all gears. With transmission in PARK and engine running, remove Check/Fill plug and add fluid as needed until it flows over from hole. Transmission oil temperature must be 86° to 130° F (30° to 55° C)

Radiator caps and drain plugs; these seem to be disappearing from our vehicles since they cost a buck or two.
If your Olds still has one, you should be able to find it easily by checking the lower tank of the radiator.
If you are flushing or changing the fluid, please do not let the old fluid simply run onto the ground since the sweetness of the stuff attracts critters and domestic pets can be poisoned by it.

Begin by sliding under the front of the car and locating the radiator drain plug on the bottom of the passenger's side of the radiator. Slide the catch container under the drain plug. Use the socket set to loosen and remove the plug. Allow all the coolant to drain out of the system.
Follow the coolant line that comes out of the bottom of the radiator and enters the engine block. Where the line enters the block, there is a small oval cover. Use the socket set to remove the two screws holding this oval cover on. Below the cover, you will find the thermostat.
Pull the thermostat out and then slide in the new thermostat. Replace the cover and tighten down the mounting screws. Unscrew the radiator cap and fill the system with a 50/50 mix of water and radiator fluid. Start the car and see if it cools down like it should.
