You can use a small amount of coolant to lubricate the outside of the fittings to aid in assembly,

you will need a 16mm and 20mm line wrench, they tend to rust quite a bit; so you might want to let it soak in penetrating fluid. The location is underneath on the drivers side in front of the rear tire; if not there it will be somewhere close to the gas tank.

SOURCE: my 2004 pontiac grand prix window it will go down

Does it try to come up, EG is there power being applied when you press the UP switch? if it makes no sound or movement when pressing the UP switch it is probably a worn out switch - available at Pontiac dealers though you may have to order it and wait a few days - have your VIN number for the parts desk and you'll get the part in no time - the switch levers out of the panel - use a plastic tool if possible to prize the switch out so you don't damage the surrounding trim - the cable connector clips off the old switch and goes on the new switch, press the switch home into the recess and jiggle it a bit to make it dead flat - window should work now.
If it IS making an effort to come up then either you have a poor earth or power connection making it so there is not enough power to pull the windows up (which is harder than down due to the weight of the window) -- check the cabling behind the door panel, and as above pull out the switch and check its connector too.
OR... the window is out of alignment and is jamming - putting it back in alignment means taking off the door panel and getting at the bottom of the window runner, loosening the bolt(s) on the bottom of the runner and moving it sideways so it hold the window steady but not tightly, you may have to try having it tighter or looser against the window till you get the best performance - also oil the moving parts/cables of the window mechanism (dont get oil on the glass, it will smear for weeks) to give the best chance of smooth operation.

Very rarely can you repair a power steering hose, in most cases other than tightening, replacement is necessary . They are high pressure and are specially made for your particular car (custom fit)

Is there a special technique for adding coolant to a 1997 pontiac grand prix?

No special technique, just fill it up, you can do both, fill up the expansion tank about half way, or to the full line, and you can pull the cap off the radiator when cold and top it right off. Don't be afraid to fill it up, it will level itself off while driving. Hope this helps.

How do i remove and install a water pump on a 2000 pontiac grand prix

obviously you need to take off the serpentine belt. realistically you can get at all the water pump bolts. but for more visibility, I took off the coil pack block (held on by two bolts) I also took off the alternator and the piece that the belt tensioner and heater hoses are attached to. not that you need to but you can also take off the power steeering pump. Do not take off the hoses. the pump has holes in the pulley that you can put a deep well socket through. #14 I believe. I just replaced the motor in my grand prix
