A sticking thermostat will cause the Oldsmobile Cutlass to overheat causing serious motor damage. The thermostat controls your coolant system allowing enough coolant to flow through the motor keeping the motor cool. You can run your car without the thermostat to keep your car cool, but you will damage your heater as the coolant does not pressurize and get hot enough to maintain a hot temperature for your heater and defroster.
Pull the lever to open the hood to reveal the engine compartment. Locate the top radiator hose.
Unscrew the hose clamp with a flat head screwdriver or a nutdriver. Remove the hose completely to access the thermostat housing. You may lose some coolant when removing the hose.
Access the thermostat housing by unbolting the two bolts on top of the housing with a socket wrench.
Scrape the old gasket material off the surfaces of the housing until the surface is smooth.
Remove the old thermostat by pulling it out with your fingers. Remember the exact position as you will place the new one in exactly the same.
Place the new thermostat in the housing. Be sure it sits the same way the old one was positioned in the housing.
Place the new gasket around the surface you previously scraped. Ensure that the gasket sits flush on the surface of the housing.
Bolt the housing back together. Be sure the gasket is aligned correctly before you tighten the bolts.
Attach the radiator hose back to the thermostat assembly and the radiator. Tighten the hose clamps. Tug the hose on both ends to ensure it has a tight fit.
Refill the radiator with new coolant. You may have lost some coolant when you removed the hose.
