You answered your own question in your question. The clue is the add coolant light. My guess is that it is low on coolant, as to why it is low there is probably a leak somewhere. GM had problems with the 3.8 upper intake plenums on the series 2 engines, and the 3.1 and 3.4 engines had problems with the lower intake manifold gaskets. If you still have the pink antifreeze in it you should take it back to the dealer as GM just lost a class action lawsuit about their Dexcool eating up intake gaskets. It is possible that if that is your problem GM will pay at least a portion of the repair costs. Hope this helps.

I got a 1997 pontiac grand prix gtp coupe. the low coolant light constantly flashes. the coolant fluids are full. i just bought it and i am a little frustrated.


Sometimes the float in the low coolant sensor gets stuck.Find where the electrical connector is on the overflow tank and lightly tap on this area.This might dislodge it,if its stuck.Good Luck!!!
