Hi: You'll first want to Drain your Radiator take your radiator cap off so when drain it the coolant will drain freely.Then Drain your raditor you'll find a Drain Tee outlet on the inside bottom of your radiator. And catch the Coolant in a Drain Pan. Standing in Front of your Vehicle you'll see a Hose connected to your Radiator(UPPER RADIATOR HOSE) take your Hand and follow it down to your Engine until you locat a Hose Clamp Remove the hose clamp and work off the top Radiator Hose.Where you removed the hose theres a Dome Shaped Metal Housing,with 2 bolts in it. Take those 2-Bolts out and Remove the Dome Thermastat Housing,Under it You'll Find your Thermostat it shuold come out with a little Resistance. Once its out, Clean Up The Thermastat Dome of any Gasket still left on it, and clean where you remove the Thermastat Surface.To put back just Reverse the Removal Be-sure your Thermastat is put in right and not up side down.Then get some Gasket Sealer Put a Little on the Thermastat Housing where gasket goes and some on the Enging surface and Install your New Thermastat,Be careful when Tightening the 2-Bolts on The Housing. not to Over tighten them.The torque Specs on the 2 bolts range between 10- 15 Foot pounds.You don't want to Strip,
After you get your New Thermastat in and your Radiator Hose on and Clamped.Make Sure you have closed the Drain outlet. then fill with coolant,if your coolant is old i recommend putting new coolant in. I hope this helps You.I;m Sure it Will, But please let me Know through FIXYA by Voting and a Testamony.This way I'll know that my solution was Helpful. Thanks From d_hubbs

Thermostat replacement 1991 olds silhouette


follow the big hose from the top of the radiator to where it goes into the engine. At the engine you will see typically 2 bolts to remove. under that is the thermostat. if it has rubber gasket, simply replace the thermostat and gasket. If it is a paper gasket, CLEAN THOROUGHLY, then rplace using some sort of gasket glue, many types available, they all will work.
