I would start by checking to see if the cooling fans are coming on, if they are I would have the thermostat change to see if that helps the problem.

how do i tell if the fans are coming on?
Buick Mechanic: Daryl, Shop Owner, Master Mechanic replied 8 years ago
When it is hot with the hood open you can see if the fans are spinning and feel if they are blowing air.

The fans are working...how hard is it to change out the thermostat?
Buick Mechanic: Daryl, Shop Owner, Master Mechanic replied 8 years ago
Its not real hard, its about a hour job.

is there a website that would show or illustrate how to do it?
Buick Mechanic: Daryl, Shop Owner, Master Mechanic replied 8 years ago

I do not know of a website, there are many manuals out that will show how (hanes, mitchel) are a couple of the most common. Below is a pic of the housing that is about all I have at this time.
