Hi Tammie, Is the coolant level low ? If not , The engine coolant level switch grounds the indicator with the coolant level in the coolant reservoir below the minimum recommended level.

Warning light coolant came on after replacing coolant container


I have the 3.4 GT model and did not know prior about the bleeder screw for the radiator. With air in the system it will blow out most of the fluid until you get the air out...Once done ...no problem at all with the radiator

1998 Pontiac Grand Am 2.4L SFI DOHC 4cyl Repair Guide

Thermostat - Removal & Installation


CAUTION When draining the coolant, keep in mind that cats and dogs are attracted by the ethylene glycol antifreeze, and are quite likely to drink any that is left in an uncovered container or in puddles on the ground. This will prove fatal in sufficient quantity. Always drain the coolant into a sealable container. Coolant should be reused unless it is contaminated or several years old.

1994-98 MODELS
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Properly drain and recover the coolant to a level below the thermostat.
  3. Unfasten the coolant inlet housing bolt, which is accessible through the exhaust manifold.

Fig. View of the thermostat and related components-2.4L engine
  1. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  2. Remove the radiator outlet pipe stud.
  3. Remove the second coolant inlet housing bolt, then remove the coolant inlet housing.
  4. Remove the thermostat, then clean the old gasket material from the mating surfaces.
To install:
  1. Position the thermostat in its correct location, then install the coolant inlet housing using a new gasket. Tighten the retaining bolt to 19 ft. lbs. (26 Nm) on the 2.3L and 10 ft. lbs. (14 Nm) on the 2.4L engine.
  2. Install the radiator outlet pipe stud.
  3. Carefully lower the vehicle.
  4. Install the coolant inlet housing bolt through the exhaust manifold.
  5. Properly fill the cooling system.
  6. Connect the negative battery cable, remove the radiator cap, then start the engine. Allow the engine to run with radiator cap removed, until the upper radiator hose becomes hot (thermostat open). With the engine idling, add coolant to the radiator until the level is up to the bottom of the filler neck.
  7. Install the radiator cap, making sure the arrows line up with the overflow tube.

I really hope help you with this (reember rated this help) Good luck.

98 Pontiac Grand Prix Overheating


YOU NEED TO REPLACE THE UPPER INTAKE MANIFOLD. ALSO, YOU WILL NEED TO REPLACE THE LOWER INTAKE MANIFOLD GASKETS. THIS IS A MANUFACTURING FLAW. THE PLASTIC INTAKE CRACKS CAUSING AN INTERNAL COOLANT LEAK. YOU CAN RESEARCH THIS ON LINE.

Low Coolant Light Flashing


Next to the radiator is a plastic recovery jug. On the side of the jug are low and high marks to show you how much coolant to put in. This jug will have a small hose running to the radiator.
