Question about 1998 Oldsmobile Intrigue
Overheating already replace tstat
The 3.1 engine has the stat behind the crossover exhaust pipe under the stat cover that hte upper raditor hose is connected to. The stat uses a "o" ring around it's edge so make sure the new one has it or have the parts person supply one many of these come with the stat. Remove the hose the air cleaner hse from the throttle body and the lower throttle body bolts that hold the cables to the throttle body the bracket needs to be moved away to get to the bolts 10MM all the way. The bolt to the front of the car needs to be removed but lossen the rear bolt just so it doesnt come out ,the cover is sloted in the back the the bolt is diffacult to install if it comes out. wiggle it out and wiggle the new one in as the old one cme out. install the front bolt them tighten the rear one them the front. install the hose or renew if spoungy or different hardness thoght its lenth. If the car over heated the coolant temp senser is likly damaged and testing or replaceing is good general pratice as the part fails easy and is'nt expensive like the gas that the car can use if it lies to the computer for the coolant temp
